The National Museum of the Sultanate of Oman, established by royal decree in 2013 and opened July 30, 2016, is the Sultanate's flagship cultural institution, showcasing the nation’s heritage from the earliest human settlement in the Oman Peninsula some two million years ago through to the present day.

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.

Opened in 2016, the museum traces the national heritage up through current day even displaying a document showing the late Sultan naming his successsor. Opposite the Royal Place, each of its galleries is devoted to a single theme. What really impressed me was the quality of the artifacts. They were not bits and pieces as often seen in historical museums. It provides an excellent display of Oman's cultures and history.
