Even for those without an interest in Muscat's history, the Bait
Al Baranda Museum presents a fascinating if long (750 million
years) story of the region. The interactive exhibitions take
visitors through tectonic plate shifts to recent folk art with an
adherence to detail and historical fact. Instead of simply housing
artefacts the Bait Al Baranda's dynamic exhibits often require
audience participation. The museum is situated in a remodelled
historic building which also periodically features local
contemporary art exhibits.
