With the Khareef season reaching its final stage, Bait Al Zubair is exhibiting at the Salalah Festival until Saturday.
For the first time, in the Luban Hall, a curated selection of pieces from the unique heritage collection in Muscat will be exhibited in Salalah along with a panel exhibition about the museum. The exhibition is complemented by a 'Hands on Heritage' selection where people can hold, examine and feel the historical items. Questions about the artefacts and the museum will be answered by Bait al Zubair's senior curator.
Paul Doubleday, General Manager of Bait al Zubair says, "The Collection at Bait Al Zubair is fantastic and we wanted to share it with a wider audience in Oman. Through the panel exhibition and physical pieces on display, we hope to be able to give a flavour of what is available for audiences outside the capital."
Bait Al Zubair displays a collection of Omani artefacts that spans a number of centuries, and is considered to be the finest privately owned such collection in Oman. Its ethnographic artefacts reflect highly specialised inherited skills that define Oman's society, both past and present. It is one of the country's architectural icons and in 1999 was the proud recipient of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos' Award for Architectural Excellence, the first time it was awarded in Oman. The complex consists of five separate buildings: Bait Al Bagh, Bait Al Dalaleel, Bait Al Oud, Bait Al Nahdhah and Gallery Sarah, as well as a garden with a number of traditional features, café and gift shop.
Bait al Zubair in Muscat is open to the public Saturday to Thursday from 9.30am to 6.00pm. To find more information about Bait Al Zubair events & activities join them on Facebook www.facebook.com/bait.alzubair and Twitter and Instagram on :
