Founded on 5th February 1972 with the main aim of collecting artifacts for a museum. This Association is now not only about history - we also have lectures and field trips on subjects as diverse as archaeology to geology to natural history by local and visiting lecturers. We also exchange visits with similar groups in the GCC states.
At present we have approximately 200 members of various ages and from all walks of life here in the Sultanate.
Our meetings are normally held twice a month on Monday evenings from 20:00 to 21:30 hours, but our lecture venues vary - sometimes we are in the PDO Oil and Gas Exhibition Center and Planetarium and on other occasions the Cultural Club in Qurm. We serve tea and coffee at the close of our meetings which gives new members the chance to get to know others.
