The Omani French Museum was established in 1992 with an aim to preserve and display historical records of the relationship between the Sultanate of Oman and the Republic of France. It is located in the iconic white building that once served as the French Embassy. The museum offers a window into the eighteenth and nineteenth century history of Oman under the French influence. On display are many rarely seen photographs of early diplomats and life as it once was in Muscat and Brittany, French and Omani traditional costumes and jewellery, vintage stamps and historical records of trade relations between the two countries. Currently, it also serves as a venue for many exhibitions and cultural events.
