Bait Al Zubair Museum


Bait Al Zubair, located in Muscat, Oman, is a cultural and heritage center that opened in 1998, funded by the Zubair family. This center is renowned for its collection of Omani artifacts, considered to be one of the finest privately owned collections in the country. With its growing collection, Bait al Zubair now houses one of the largest heritage and permanent art collections in the country, and has become a leading cultural complex that is internationally recognized by museums and art galleries.

The center consists of six separate buildings, including a garden with a miniature Omani village, an aflaj system, and a variety of indigenous plants and trees, which create a peaceful and serene environment for visitors. The buildings themselves are an integral part of the collection, as they showcase traditional Omani architecture and design.

Bait Al Zubair also exhibits two old canons that were presented by His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said to the museum on the occasion of its opening. In 1999, the center received His Majesty Sultan Qaboos’ Award for Architectural Excellence, making it one of Oman’s architectural icons.

Visitors to Bait Al Zubair can experience Oman’s rich heritage and culture through the center’s various displays and exhibitions. The center also partners with museums and art galleries to host temporary exhibitions and to serve as a learning and research resource on Omani heritage.
