Great museum. Visit both halls, then explore the archaeological site. The walk is long, but you see many things on the way. They’re excavating some areas, and you can explore other areas.

Worth a visit with the archaeological site. Newly opened it has lots of examples of findings from the archaeological dig and a little background on what makes Oman such a special place to visit.

Museum of the Frankincense Land is quite interesting with lots of artifacts and boats to see. After seeing this you can walk round Al-Baleed historical UNESCO site. It is a long walk all the way round especially in the heat so be prepared.
