Lovely little museum just under the fort. A short walk along the Corniche to the museum where we were warmly welcomed and had the museum to ourselves. A traditional Omani home with items up to 1960s/70s interspersed with some paintings which are a joy.

Definitely I can recommend to visit the museum! Interesting to see how the Omanis used to live. They even have a small Art Gallery where we bought a picture.

The museum of people and places is a perfect destination for anyone who wants to develop an inside view into Oman life back in the 70's. It is a labor of love and sheds an interesting dimension to Oman culture and heritage through story telling, scents and crafts, views and flavors. Highly recommended.

This little unassuming museum of modern daily life in Muscat-Oman is a terrific introduction to how people lived. The country is in the midst of massive change and it is good to be able to consider where it is coming from. Highly recommended.

Modern art Unusual but amazing little museum. Crowded, narrow passageways. Extremely colorful. I would say this is a complete blend of history and art.
