Wandering around the display of old dhows and other boats is interesting, though you don't need long for this little collection, but it's the chance to see the dhows being built nearby which is most fascinating - traditional techniques are still used and you can...More

It won't take a lot of your time, but visiting the show factory is worth it. Seeing the splendor of old wooden boats skillfully revived is a beautifully experience. You can visit the factory at the beginning or end if a exploring day.

A must do in Sur. This is advertised as the last working traditional dhow factory in the world and it’s certainly worth a visit. This isn't the old "Maritime Museum", and the location in TA is wrong here. We arrived at 1630 on a Tuesday...More

Easy to find and access. Small and very unassuming.Really enjoyed climbing the scaffolding and inspecting a new boat under construction. Probably not for everyone, but we enjoyed the stop

Only a small outdoor museum, the building itself was closed which was a pity. Worth stopping for a few minutes to have a look at some of the dhows.

This is a shipyard you find just by the bridge, you can walk in and see various Dhows under construction, the old machinery and timber - really interesting to see how its done. Not entirely sure this is the museum, but really good.

Don't use current google maps to find the museum, as it has moved and the former museum is now a school.

The open air museums contains a few different kinds of dhows and they all have a little board with explinations in front of them. Walk towards the fence near by the sea and look at the surface of the water for a while. Most of...More
