The Maritime Experiential Museum has reopened its doors after an extensive 9-month overhaul to unveil a brand new immersive experience that lets you relive the glorious Maritime Silk Route of eras past.
Be transported through time in 15 thematic galleries that let you explore life on the sea and journey in the tailwinds of great explorers Zheng He, Marco Polo, Sang Nila Utama and Ibn Battuta.
There’s plenty to see, touch, smell and to be engaged in, with state-of-the-art visual projections, multimedia shows, interactive hands-on exhibits (e.g. learn how to tie knots like a sailor), and olfactory experiences (e.g. take in the sights and smells of the ancient port of Oman).
Two anchor attractions have remained – Typhoon Theatre and the Jewel of Muscat. The 150-seat immersive multimedia Typhoon Theatre lets you “embark” on a perilous journey onboard a 9th century Chinese junk and come face-to-face with the wrath of the treacherous ocean. The Jewel of Muscat is a replica of a 9th century Arabian Dhow built the traditional way without nails or screws, but sewn together with coconut fibers.
