Founder message

Bait al Zubair is renowned in the region as the premier heritage, arts and culture hub in Oman offering a wide range of cultural experiences to people, both local, resident expatriate and tourists, of all ages. We are committed to preserving, protecting and presenting Oman’s rich cultural heritage through the carefully assembled heritage collection, as well as supporting the next generation of Omani creatives.

Bait al Zubair provides support for both established and up and coming young creatives to develop, learn and explore as well as to exhibit, perform or install their works in order to broaden the knowledge and awareness of Omani heritage and contemporary creativity.

The family established the Bait Al Zubair Foundation in 2005 to manage Bait Al Zubair and projects relating to culture and heritage, the arts, the community, history and publishing. It is the cultural and social arm of the family-owned business — The Zubair Corporation.

“In order to safeguard our heritage through changing times, it is our duty to preserve all aspects of culture and tradition … Our aim is not only to promote our valuable Omani heritage but to maintain, preserve and study it so that it may benefit succeeding generations and inspire them to sustain the Islamic and Arab identity and traditions.”
