“Miniature Omani Village Scene” (Bait al Zubair Museum)

outside bait al zubair  If you are ever fortunate enough to visit Oman, make sure to visit the Bait al Zubair Museum (“The House that Became a Museum“) in Old Muscat.  And if you make it to the museum, make sure you don’t leave before heading outside to see all the interesting things on display there!  Of all the exhibitions at the museum, one of my favorites is the miniature Omani village they have on display outdoors.model 1model 2model 3
