It has gained popularity as a local tourist destination and strives to provide visitors a glimpse into the rich history of the Kingdom by showcasing a variety of rare heritage equipment.

Salem Al-Hajouri, a retired principal of a school, works full-time as a curator at the authorized private museum. He has a passion for historical items. He has accumulated historical items for 40 years. It is because of his meticulous leadership that princes, celebrities, sheikhs, and foreign delegations have all visited the museum.

The museum is divided into three primary sections: seafaring, historical coins, and heritage. Six halls have been created from these sections, and each one contains the following:

An antique car, worn clothing, and old materials.

Early Islamic paintings and weapons from that period include shields, swords, guns, and spears that have Arabic inscriptions on them.

Islamic and Arab commemorative medals and rare gold and silver coins.

Old books, newspapers, testimonials, and manuscripts.
