This is a cracking museum with as much to see outside as there is inside. Firstly, get there early because it closes early. Sunday to Thursday it is open 0800-1330. And Saturday it is open 0900-1200 and 1500-1800. Unfortunately the day we visited, the museum...More

I decided to visit this place on a recommendation and was so pleased I did! The museum is only open until 1330hrs each day so a morning schedule is crucial. There is plenty of parking available which is free, the museum itself costs 1 OMR...More

Very good displays of the history of the Armed Forces and Oman in general. 1 OMR entrance or free as I was with an ex - Army officer and we had a very good guide from the Royal Guard.

If you are interested in knowing about Oman's history of Armed forces you can visit this place and spend 1 to 1 and half hour. Our army guide was very polite and helped us in understanding the armed force history, culture. Entry fee is minimal.

Apart from the very friendly Omani tourguide who was in the Royal Army, the whole layout of the museum gives you insight in the history of Oman's Army. Thought was put into explaining the different influences and who fought against the Omanis. It is a...More

The exhibition is interesting as you will learn a lot not only about Oman’s armed forces but also about the country and it’s rich history in general. For the price of only one Rial we were able to walk around the museum with Mohammed, a...More

This trip is well worth doing; but make sure that you complete the tour of the exhibits outside before it gets too hot! A shame that the significant involvement of UK forces, 57-59 and 64-75 has been largely airbrushed out. Never mind.
