We almost didn't get here but so glad we did. , The tour itself left a lot to be desired but, the facility is gorgeous and the opera hall itself is over the top. Wish we'd have had time for lunch in the restaurant.

The restaurant is very nice. I really liked the style,very clean but not very much the food. In my opinion,it didn't have a proper and specific taste. For me was a bit "without soul". Beautiful view from the balcony and to try the water with the luban

A extensive and varied menu. You can chose local dishes or something more western. My friend ordered the slow cooked meat and rice, I had a veggie curry and rice. Flavours are interesting and not too spicy. The service is amazing and very efficient. Almost a bit to quick in the gap between each course. Lovely juices - try the... More

Entrance is 2OR for adults, kids are free. Nice collection of things from Oman culture. Close to Sultans palace. You will need 1 to 2 hours for visit.

This is a must for all visitors to Muscat wanting to find out more about the history of local folklore in a fairly informal setting. The actual journey via Muttrah Souq is very pretty and the museum is nestled amongst mountainous land and traditional Omani houses. The museum itself is very well set-out, comprehensive and colourful, as are the outside... More

Reasonably priced entry to museum (2/1 OMR). It is well curated and interesting. Worth the trip, as this is my third visit. The cafe, although a little pricey, is good with friendly service. Was a shame to have no table service at those prices, though. Food was very good.

It´s interesting museum, but we were limited by time, so we didnt studied all information detaily. But you can get all necessary information about Oman history...especially I liked the historical photos.

So many different buildings, rooms, galleries to explore here. Allow yourself a good two hours minimum. I was the only person in one of the buildings (contemporary art) the whole time I was there, so, crowded? Not a bit of it. I enjoyed the mannequins with the costumes, and the musical instruments, also the outdoor falaj display and the large... More

The displays are attractively laid out and varied and interesting. They depict both cultural and historical artifacts. The display of Omani Women's dress although small is eye catching. There is a small coffee shop and extensive collection of current and older Coffee table books to review in the cool entry hall and the quirky colorful antelope on parade in the... More
