Natural History Museum

This museum is small and only a few collections are on display, but they are a must see. The museum sheds light on Muscat and Oman’s geography and geology. Plants and animals common to the area are on exhibit with a specific hall devoted to marine species and wildlife. An amazing exhibit is that of a skeleton of a sperm whale found in Muscat about 30 years ago. The botanical gardens are also lovely to walk through.
