Oman Across Ages Museum
Located in Nizwa, the crossroads of Oman, the Oman Across Ages Museum Project is a cultural and educational hallmark for locals and visitors. Commissioned by Sultan Qaboos bin Said al-Said, the museum is a celebration of the country’s economic, cultural and social renaissance since the 1970s.
The design centres on creating a journey – a set of unique experiences, and a place of memories and enlightenment. The museum acknowledges the rich foundations of the country’s past while celebrating its bright and opportunistic future. Forging a bridge between past and future, the space will transcend knowledge of the country’s achievements in an innovating, informative and interactive manner.
The project offers an insight into Oman through a comprehensive, layered narrative. The design works within its unique landscape to craft a museum bred from the earth of Oman. The Oman Across Ages Museum harmonises its topography with stories of human and cultural achievement.
