New Perspectives

The World of Oman is a central place for the presentation and recognition of the globally acknowledged brand »Oman«. It has the ambition to achieve a permanent high frequency of visitors in the general public. The World of Oman is an open, communicative place that captures relevant themes and activities in education, culture, arts, science, economy and tourism.

The basic idea for a comprehensive presentation on Oman originates in the suggestion of a large walk-in model of the country that allows visitors exclusive views on the distinctive characteristics of Oman in a real-life as well as a virtual mode. Themed rooms and immersive environments accompany the model to give a multi-sensory presentation about the characteristic facets of the country. Nonetheless the exhibition is dedicated to the encouragement of aesthetically education and the integration of interactive learning tools for visitors of all ages. Themes and content base upon scientific research but present information in an easily accessible way with illustrative installations. Innovative ways of knowledge-transfer evoke emotion, creativity and understanding.

The World of Oman emphasizes the universal aspect and the difference to classical museums on a total area of 1.500 sqm plus functional and service area. The concept includes all essential operational aspects, with options for extension.
