Located just north of Husn al Shumookh in Manah it will be  the largest Museum in Oman. The angular style is in keeping with the more ‘modern’ style of the latest batch of Oman’s public buildings, including the National Exhibition Center, Bank Muscat and the complex around the fish market in Muttrah. The entire focus will be on Oman, which is a characteristic of all Oman’s museums rather than other countries as with the museums in Abu Dhabi and Qatar.
