ROL Cruise recommends…


1. Get to know the city at the Muscat Gate Museum

For an informative insight into the city’s unique history, head to Muscat Gate Museum. It’s not often that you get an opportunity to while away an evening  learning about a city’s ancient mosques, forts, souks and centuries-old wells in such a breathtaking setting. Early birds will be happy to hear that the museum is open throughout the day too - but if you ask us, the experience is enhanced at night-time, when this stunning building is illuminated to magical effect.


2. Indulge your musical side at the Royal Opera House Muscat

If you’ve got an afternoon and evening to spare in Muscat, indulge your taste for the finer things in life by revelling in the grandeur of the city’s Royal Opera House. This opulent location attracts music lovers from far and wide; plus, as well as hosting some of the world’s most revered operas, it houses some fantastic restaurants and retail destinations.


3. Be inspired at Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque

It’s easy to see why this breathtaking spot is one of the most popular attractions for sightseers from within Oman and beyond. A gift bestowed to the nation by Sultan Qaboos as a celebration of his 30 year reign, opulence can be found around every corner. Measuring an impressive 60 by 70 metres, the majestic handmade carpet in the main prayer hall is a must-see exhibit. A word to the wise: look into this attraction’s clothing regulations in advance to avoid disappointment.


4 Buff up on military history at the Sultan’s Armed Forces Museum

If you’re keen on military history, your trip to Muscat would not be complete without some time spent at the Sultan’s Armed Forces Museum. This popular attraction houses an impressive collection of artefacts relating to the region’s military, including medals, guns, cannons and vehicles. The museum’s knowledgeable guides will be eager to tell you all you need to know about the locality’s rich military heritage.


5 Explore the region’s rich history at The National Museum of Oman

One of the most respected institutions within Muscat and throughout Oman – as well as across the world –  the National Museum is proud to tell the full story of the country’s heritage. Boasting tales and artefacts dating to the days of the country’s first settlers over two million years ago to the present day, this magnificent, purpose-built museum houses well over 5,000 objects, making it a must-visit spot for history-loving travellers.
