Bait Al Zubair Museum

Established to help preserve and showcase Oman’s rich heritage and the Al Zubair family history, Bait Al Zubair Museum houses the largest, private collection of Omani artifacts in the country. Founded in 1914 as a private family residence by His Excellency Mohammad Al Zubair’s father, Sheikh Al Zubair bin Ali, Bait Al Zubair was turned into a museum in 1998 after the family changed residence.

The museum houses collections consisting of over 5,000 specially selected, inherited or donated pieces, spanning a number of centuries and regions, all reflecting Oman’s splendid cultural history and unique identity. From traditional Omani weaponry, jewellery, costumes to household utensils, early European maps of the Arabian Peninsula and early photographs, manuscripts and books, Bait Al Zubair Museum imparts Oman’s history to residents and visitors alike.

The museum, in conjunction with Bait Al Zubair Foundation, also plays an active role within the community, providing complimentary educational services to schools, colleges and universities.
