Muscat in Paintings at Bait al Baranda Museum

                                My honey at the entrance of “Bait al Baranda” (“Veranda House” in English), a lovely museum found in old Muscat near the port. The topics chosen by the museum to present the story of Muscat include: plate tectonics and scenic diversity in Muscat; ancient life in Muscat; earliest human settlements from 10,000 BC to the early Islamic era; Muscat in the words of geographers and travellers; Muscat from the 1st century to 1744 AD; Al Busaid dynasty; Muscat the challenge and the achievement and folk arts of Muscat.
