Things to do in Muscat

Palaces and museums in Muscat are two of the main attractions for those seeking a little cultural and historical sightseeing. The Bait al Zubair Museum isn’t the biggest, but it packs the biggest punch with a masterfully curated private collection that is modestly displayed in a restored traditional home. The Omani-French Museum is a unique venue housing galleries that detail the relation between Oman and France, giving visitors a taste of what 19th-century life was like for Muscat citizens. The Al Jalali Fort once guarded the east entrance of the harbor during the 1580s; today, it houses a museum of Omani heritage. Make sure you apply to the Ministry of National Heritage and Culture for your permit to visit this place. The main palace that attracts visitors in Oman is Al Alam Palace, or Sultan’s Palace. Head to the heart of Old Muscat and check out this palace with a contemporary Islamic design.

Souqs, or open-air markets, are a popular destination for a day out on the town. Don’t miss Mutrah Souq, a top rated market in Oman, and pick up some traditional Omani artifacts as souvenirs, grab a cup of coffee at the café near the souq’s entrance, and walk through the shop-filled streets as you decide what you want to take with you. You’ll want to spend a good deal of time at the Mutrah Souq, so be sure you have a half or full day open so you can wander through the market admiring all the treasures.

Beaches in Muscat are the perfect place to relax after all your exploring. The 2,100-mile long coastline provides ample space for beach-lounging, sand castle-building, or picnicking along the water. Qurm Beach is a great spot to do all that and more. Located near the Qurm Nature Reserve towards Crowne Plaza Hotel, this beach is popular for families and even features some cafes along the waterfront that offer a sea-side view.
