The Children’s Museum in Muscat, Oman showcases an array of interactive scientific displays mainly focused on children within the ages of 6 – 12 years. Most of what is showcased is hands-on learning tasks which are based on different scientific concepts.

You will find optical illusions that will trick your brain. Learning about biology will never be as fun as it is at the Children’s museum since you can see a life-size human skeleton with internal body parts that will teach you things about your body you never imagined.

The museum was opened in 1990 and has grown to be quite popular for the past 23 years with close to 50,000 children visiting the facility annually. The structure of the museum which is two white domed buildings is eye catching and cannot be missed if you drive down Sultan Qaboo Steet.

Even though the museum is focused more on children, adults will definitely find many interesting things inside it. From 3D images, tricky questions, trivia to photographing your own shadow the list of fun things you and your family can enjoy is endless. The exhibition section of the museum is divided into three areas, including human life, physics and observation which investigate the development of science through the years. Some of the other experiences that the museum offers include a fake electric shock, triggering a lightning bolt, launching a hot air balloon and sending messages through a whisper dish.

This edutainment centre is a great place for children to have fun while they learn many new things. If you are in Muscat don’t miss out on a visit to the Children’s Museum which is opened from Saturday to Wednesday from 8.30am to 1.30pm and Thursdays from 9am to 1pm.
