The magnificent new building, opened in July 2016, houses a collection that spans Oman’s history from the earliest human settlement – around two million years ago – to the present day. Sumptuously illustrated with highlights from the sixteen galleries, this book illuminates Oman’s rich maritime, military and religious history.
