Children’s Museum:

The thrill starts right at the front door, where you will find yourself marvelling at the iconic white domed building that’s located on the Sultan Qaboos highway in Qurum. The museum offers 45 exhibits from the field of physics and science. It is an edutainment centre that offers an enlightening experience with plenty of activities. Photographing your own shadow, faking electric shocks, creating electricity by using energy, launching an air-balloon and exploring the insides of the human body are some of the fun things on offer. A must-visit for the little explorers.
