An Enthralling Journey

Oman Across Ages is a new national museum, a vision of the late His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said al Said. It celebrates the creation of a nation, praises human spirit, and inspires young Omanis to connect with their rich history.

We were commissioned by the Royal Court to create a vision when the museum was nothing more than an idea. After developing a full masterplan and running the architectural competition, we then designed every display, even undertaking graphic production during delivery.

Scale and Spectacle

The museum is a vast, sweeping journey through time. Starting with the first settlers of prehistory and ending in modern-day Oman, visitors fly through different ages, dynasties and societies. 9,000 square metres of gallery space allowed us to create dramatic and jaw-dropping displays and experiences on a scale that does justice to Oman’s rich history. The museum is a masterpiece in its use of media and graphics. Archival and contemporary film footage and photography, and the considered use of augmented reality combine with stunning object displays to spectacular effect.
