A great exhibit. Well worth half a day of our time. Will probably go again. Perhaps not for young children, but teenagers should be able to appreciate this.

The museum is quite small but you can learn a lot about the culture and history of Oman. The building itself is absolutely beautiful. It has a very modern look and it's located right across the Sultan's Palace. I would recommend catching the short film that is in both Arabic and English.
