Oman’s Cultural Heritage
Oman’s cultural heritage is heavily influenced by its coastal location. The Oman National Museum reflects this maritime history with prototypes of Omani ships and objects relating to the trade. There are many items of jewellery on display such as bracelets, necklaces and other decorative items that tell a story of Oman’s trading legacy.
The Splendours of Islam gallery has a permanent exhibition covering Islam and the Modern Age and explains Islam’s influence on the Omani people, the sciences and the arts. The organisers hope to transform the museum into a tourist friendly window where people around the world can gain an understanding of Oman. The museum also holds competitions aimed at artists bringing their installations and artwork into this much-loved public space.
