Stroll through Museum of the Frankincense Land, a museum that documents the once illustrious maritime strength of the nation, and in particular the sea port of Zafar, which was supported by the spice trade. The well-organized display, featuring adequately labelled exhibitions, describes the downfall of the port. Kilometers of landscaped paths along the coast feature reed beds and frolicking geese, along with an archaeological site featuring ruins of the port's past. Children under the age of six cannot enter the museum halls. Plan my trip to Salalah with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Museum of the Frankincense Land Reviews
A well presented museum that highlighted the trade routes that have used Salalah over the centuries. The model demonstrating the the ingenious water supply for the city was super. My favourite... more »
A pleasant if not extensive museum adjacent to the Al Baleed archaelogical site. The exhibits are well presented but the soldiers on duty are not guides and do not speak much English more »
The museum is quite small but the tour may be really interesting if you have a right guide with enough knowledge. Its not only on frankincence but whole history of Oman, as well as present times. We enjoyed this short history lesson, especially the part on sailing so I recommend to anyone who has some curiosity in the history of this part of the world.
A great place to visit and mooch around the excavations, pretty comprehensive museum and displays st a very reasonable price. Worth a look
