Dhow Factory, Sur Overview

Sur is one of the most significant as well as historic sites in Arabia that is famous for building wooden boats. Dhow, in Arabic, literally translates to ‘boat. Situated to the south of the Khor Al Batah suspension bridge, this museum is steeped in rich historical significance. It is also a museum which showcases different sections, with the dignified Wilayat emblem ‘Al Ghanja Ship’ adorning the entrance. A walk through the great factory can give one a fascinating opportunity to look into how wooden boats were made in earlier times.

Displaying Omani ships, along with photographs of sailors, makers of ships, ports, and of Sur itself, the Maritime Museum also holds a section for tableware and pottery. Since the museum is not very large, it should not take more than an hour to explore this beautiful place and immerse in its rich heritage and history.
