    The Omani French Museum is based in the original French Consul's residence, Bait Fransa built in 1896.
    Exhibits concern the Omani-French relationship over the years and displays furniture, clothes and photographs of the early French diplomats.
    It is quite interesting and the photos of early Oman are good.

    Elsewhere in the walled city you can visit the Omani-French Museum, a rather less interesting collection of documents and artefacts relating to the friendship between France and Oman, located in the original French embassy building.
