french-omani museum

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.
