Bait Al Zubair Reviews
Bait al Zubair is a great museum with number of good exhibitions. I’m impressed especially on seafare and some of the modern art. A bit more expensive than some other museums but definitely worth it! more »

Private museum, one of the oldest in Muscat...has excellent display of male/female Omani attire, jewellery, old architecture, timeline of camera from old box camera, .....ancient furniture of the house owner....ancient swords, guns, daggers to models of houses, dam........amazing collection.....MUST visit if u are in Muscat & have enjoyed the beaches.....
Nice place to visit as I spent a weekend in Oman. Has the historic features and is close by to the souk and other touristy parts of muscat. Very close to the water too. The national museum and the palace is only a short walk away too do you can enjoy a good few hours at this location. Very clean and beautiful. Definitely worth a cost when you spend the weekend in the city or country. Very cheap to get in too.
