  • I liked this place very informative and entertaining for kids and parents
  • You can learn about the process of oil and gas extraction from very beginning. There is a lot of experiments you can try also. I can imagine it could be fun for kids. Anyway its dead silence in museum which makes really strange atmosphere and overall look of exhibits is quite old school. But it was good experience.
  • Tells you about oil and gas history, technology
  • To see the history of this place is interesting, and worth the visit. Oman is proud of itself and the people are wonderful. This is well worth a visit.
  • Attended a talk on Wildlife photography organised by ESO. Nice hall. Ample parking space.
