Are you enthusiastic about the rich heritages and pasts of the places that you visit? If so, museums are an ideal place for you to visit; here you could be privy to a wealth of information and insight to the past of various vibrant cultures and cities. Located on Sadiya Street, the Muscat gate Museum tries to present a step by step exploration of the city’s beginnings right up to the present day. The gate formerly served as the city’s boundary while Muscat was being contained inside reinforced walls.
The museum provides an interesting recreational excursion to many foreigners who are drawn to the rich and proud heritage of the city and it also serves as an educational outlet for anybody willing to gain important information on aspects such as the architecture, historical artefacts, significant events and the likes. If you are also looking to stay over in the area there are many hotels in Oman, Muscat such as the Ruwi Hotel to name one out of many, that could cater to your accommodation requirements.
You could, it is said, spend hours at a time walking through the numerous displays in the museums and observing the labyrinthine hallways filled with many of Muscat’s relics. The museum will take you on a journey of its own where the various stages of growth and development of the city from a commercial port to a booming capital will enthrall you. You could also walk to the top of the gate and catch a glimpse of the city beyond bathed in the shimmering sunlight during the day time. The museum is open for public visits from Saturday to Thursday from about 9.30 in the morning till about 7.00 in the night with breaks in between for lunchtime during which they will be closed.
