A very small museum - it really is just 1 room - but it is well presented and most informative. It gives you the history and importance of dhow ship building in Sur. Once spending some time in here, visit the workshop outside for a better appreciation of this art.

This is a very informative museum. The descriptions are well written and provide a thorough history of Sur's maritime history. The displays are colorful and attractive. We spent 45 minutes. Watch the film too.

Here you can see locals hand build dhows. These are traditional boats used for fishing and carrying people between destinations. It gives you a sense of lifestyle. There is also a museum but the best part was exploring the dhows themselves (you can climb up into one that is being built).

The view of the sea from this museum is magnificent. and the museum is full of sea man stories and traditional life in the small town of Sur with a rich history and lineage of building strong traditional dhows and boats that are still used for fishing as well as sea transport to various countries.

A little difficult to find as there are no signs indicating the it was the Maritime Museum. It is a new building, not very large, but the historical contents were interesting - worth hunting out. It has an adjacent car park

Nice and informative Museum about Omans marine history. Most interesting is the Dhau outside. All on display inside is quite simple and not of high historic value.

Great to wonder amongst different types of wooden boats and dhows and to observe their construction. Small indoor museum selling a few wooden crafted pieces.

Wandering around the display of old dhows and other boats is interesting, though you don't need long for this little collection, but it's the chance to see the dhows being built nearby which is most fascinating - traditional techniques are still used and you can see the skeletons of the boats ready to be transformed into luxurious crafts. I doubt we'd have found the boatyard without our guide although you can just wander in to see the collection on the seafront easily enough.
