This gallery is the first in Oman to be dedicated to the country’s rich intangible heritage. There are five main sections. The first deals with traditional music and displays a variety of musical instruments. Interactive screens offer the visitor the chance to find out more about these instruments, as well as the various genres of traditional Omani music, and to listen to songs by notable Omani performers. The second section is dedicated to traditional Omani dance genres, with descriptions and video links displayed on interactive screens. The third section deals with al-Bar’ah, a musical tradition from the Dhofar Governorate in southern Oman, the first Omani genre to be inscribed on the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. The fourth section is dedicated to traditional Omani cuisine – recipes are displayed on an interactive screen. The fifth section looks at the status of the camel and the horse in Oman. Finally, two showcases display the oldest known musical instrument in Oman and the oldest written story.
