Natural history museum.
Small but informational natural history museum. If geology is your interest, the Bait Al Zubair museum has even better information.

Some things different!
Dec 2019 • Family

We didn’t expect to see much in this museum but we found something we haven’t seen before...the real skeleton of the giant sperm whale & the story behind it. In addition to the natural history of Oman , animals. Bird and much more. The entry was cheap just 2 Omani rials

Environment Diversity!!!
Apr 2019 • Family
Entrance fee is I think OMR1. and the museum is open all days except friday. Closes roughly around 1300hrs or 1330 I guess.

The Museum shows the Omani environment diversity in geology, plants, insects, wild animals and marine life. The Museum features stuffed animals rarely found in the wilds of types and species living in the land of Oman, skeletons of marine organisms, birds and reptiles lived in Omani environment and died naturally. Though the museum is quite small but has lots to share about the diversity.

Decent museum with some nice displays. Close to hotel City Seasons and on the way to the beach so it was an easy choice.

Hidden gem
Jan 2019
If you like natural history take 1.5 hours to go through the various rooms at this museum. It has exhibits on natural history, birds, animals, geological facts, evolution of Oman etc.
We thoroughly enjoyed the marine exhibit too.
Entry is only 1 OMR
It’s open on all days in the morning but also from 2 to 4 pm on some days even tho the website does not mention it.
Call and check before you visit

A showcase of Oman's wildlife.

This is one of Oman's oldest museums, well thought out presentations but as it's now so old is in dire need of a refurbishment. I hope it gets it as it was a great place to visit

Good little museum, some exhibits are a little old, but still good. Great place for children. Friendly staff. I think it cost only 1 Riyal to get in.

Impressive addition to capital city

Really enjoyed my visit although the sullen staff on the payment desk were not the greatest advert for Omani customer services, as they initially refused to accept cash payment then grudgingly changed their mind with no explanation
