I found that they had limited options and they were generally more expensive than other souvenir shops. I don't know if the difference in quality justifies the price difference. On the plus side, the Gallery's decor is nice, and the location is convenient.

I try to visit cooperatives and nonprofit artist related sites in every country I visit. This store is very good, but very pricey. It is pricey by Oman standards and by Gulf Country standards. Much of the work is nice and it does support a good cause. However, I feel a conscientious buyer can find better quality at a much... More

If you want shopping in Muscat, then here is the place to start. Unlike the souk in Muttrah this is all the real stuff. Well worth a visit. Located in a shopping/dining area between the Intercontinental hotel and the sea. The area is a must do on the tourist trail but the locals come down in the evening too. There... More

We visit frequently and every time we visit we make it a point to stop at THE OMANI HERITAGE GALLERY, in fact, we make a stop when we first arrive, as i love to... More

After seeing ZeinaA_11's uninformed comment I would like to reiterate that the Omani Heritage Gallery, A NON-PROFIT ORGANISATION, offer authentic Omani products made IN Oman BY Omanis. Unfortunately, the author of the previous comment shows a lack of understanding of what is authentic Omani vs the kitsch found in the souq. Unlike the author, I, an OMANI, am able to... More

I was not very impressed by this Gallery, I think it did not offer allot of the Omani authenticity you can get in allot of other places in Muscat and Oman. I think it is rather for tourist and it is commercial. The things theyare selling are nice but not as authentic as other places.
