Zeb and Duck and Chanel the Bear are heading for a museum in Muscat, Oman.
As we approach the entrance, we love these animal statues.
In the lobby, while our guide gets our tickets, we admire the window and the weapons on the wall.
Looking through to the building we see many artifacts of Oman’s long history. But, the lady says mom cannot take photos inside. Sad, but we enjoy looking at so many items, current and ancient. After much time enjoying the exhibits, we exit, only to find there is more outside. These boats are typical of those used years ago and even used today.
Look at this model of ancient Muscat.
And more goat statues.
I really liked the pink head on this one. These were for a Muscat Art Festival.
Leaving the museum, we drive through Muscat. Aren’t the mountains great?
We see an old fort on a hill near the water.
This huge white building is another palace.
Now visiting dignitaries and emirates stay here. I guess they didn’t know that Chanel the Bear, and I, Zeb the Duck, are dignitaries in our world. We were not invited to stay here??? Maybe next time? This panorama shows some of Muscat’s old area and buildings.
Isn’t this a beautiful place? Well, our time in Muscat has come to an end, and we enjoyed it very much. Back to Muscat’s airport, on the plane, and back to Abu Dhabi, another eye scan, and a cab back to our hotel.
We loved Oman and we love Abu Dhabi. When you visit Muscat, perhaps you will plan to be there when tourists can enter the Grand Mosque and the Opera House. But, if not, you will still see and experience so much. We hope to hear that you will visit Oman. It is a fascinating country.
