Muscat Gate Museum

Museum in Muscat
Jenny Walker / Lonely Planet

Straddling the road between the Corniche and the old walled city, this museum, with the original gates used until the 1970s to keep land-bound marauders out, marks the position of the old city wall and introduces Muscat proper. Though the museum's exhibits are of limited interest, the site provides a vantage point for the Corniche and the diwan.
