Sultan's Armed Forces Museum
One of the most interesting museum's in Muscat, the Sultan's Armed Forces Museum offers much more than just a display of military hardware.
The museum is based in the Bayt al Falaj Fort, which was built in 1845. Originally a royal summer home, the fort is now the headquarters of the Sultan's armed forces.
Whilst there is an impressive collection of military items, the museum also delves into centuries of Omani history.
Please note that as the museum is often included in itineraries for visiting dignitaries, you will have a mandatory military escort.
