For a glimpse into the local past, take a spin around this thoughtfully curated exhibit in an 18th-century fort that, until 1964, served as the residence of the Qawasim rulers. Aside from the usual ethnological assortment, there's some nifty artefacts dug up in Julfar, an important port town from the 13th to the 18th centuries. Gems include intricately patterned Iron Age softstone vessels and 18th-century terracotta urns.
