Oman Across Ages Museum

Muscat, Oman

The Royal Court Affairs, Royal Estates in Oman, is committed to the delivery of a new world-class destination in Oman. Located at Nizwa, the crossroads of Oman, the new Renaissance Museum Project will be a cultural and educational hallmark for all Omanis and all visitors to Oman. The purpose of the Oman Across Ages Museum is to tell the story of Oman from prehistory to the present day, with a focus on the period of Renaissance since 1970, during which Oman has experienced a sustained period of development and transformation under the leadership of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos.

The proposal is centred on creating a unique journey – a set of experiences like no other, and a place of memories and enlightenment. The new Museum acknowledges the rich foundations of the past in celebration of a bright and opportunistic future for Omanis and international visitors alike. The new Museum forges a bridge between the past and the future so that the youth of Oman transcend the knowledge of the past and engage with the Country’s tangible and intangible achievements in an innovative, informative and interactive manner.

The project aims to present the story of Oman’s history, growth and development and offer an insight into the Oman of tomorrow through a comprehensive, layered narrative. The concept fundamentally works with the unique landscape to craft a museum bred out of the earth of Oman. It harmonises the landscape with the stories of human enlightenment and achievement.
