Museum of the Frankincense Land, Salalah

4.0
#2 of 23 in Museums in Oman
Stroll through Museum of the Frankincense Land, a museum that documents the once illustrious maritime strength of the nation, and in particular the sea port of Zafar, which was supported by the spice trade. The well-organized display, featuring adequately labelled exhibitions, describes the downfall of the port. Kilometers of landscaped paths along the coast feature reed beds and frolicking geese, along with an archaeological site featuring ruins of the port's past. Children under the age of six cannot enter the museum halls. Plan my trip to Salalah with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

  • Small but very interesting museum that has a lot to offer to its visitors. Great place to learn more about the history of Oman.  more »
  • 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.  more »
