The Zubair family founded the Bait Al Dalaleel as a cultural foundation and museum in 1998. The Foundation’s goal is to encourage projects related to Omani culture and history and the arts. One segment of the museum is the Bait Al Dalaleel, a renovated house that exemplifies traditional Omani architecture. The house includes a majlis (a guest lounge), a bedroom, and a domestic date store. The Bait Al Dalaleel also contains an art space and café to view experimental art.
