Bait Al Zubair Museum

First and foremost, Friday's not a good day for museum-hopping in Oman. Those being run by the government were closed. The privately-owned Bait Al Zubair Museum was open on that day because of a group of tourists from a cruise ship that was docked in the nearby port in Muttrah district.

Entrance fee to the museum costs OMR 2 (about USD 5). The museum has three areas; an outdoor exhibit where replicas of boats, like the wooden raft called ash’ shashah, and houses are located. There’s a working well also. The main building or Bait Al Bagh, houses traditional Omani clothing, furniture, jewelry, and transportation from the different regions of the country. Coffee or some snacks are being sold near its exit. The next structure is the Bait Al Oud. When asked what was inside, the custodian said, “Old stuff. Lots of old stuff.”

Photography is discouraged within the premises but I managed to take some, that’s where “shooting from the hip” came in handy.
