The Bait Al Zubair museum is tucked away in Old Muscat, just to the east of the contemporary city, and it puts the spotlight on Oman's history and heritage.

In addition to the six individual buildings that make up the complex, there is also a garden that features an aflaj system and a variety of plants and trees that are indigenous to the area.
