Museum has interesting information about the different styles of traditional clothing and the cultural history of Oman. It also contains interesting collections of coins and stamps. It also helped me learn more about history - as part of Pakistan used to be part of Oman

A most interesting museum that gives a wonderful overview of the history of Muscat (and Oman) ... well set out and very informative. Clothes, weaponry, models of local forts, life style of the time are all featured, including some of the early musical instruments.
