SQCC hosts a Groups of Learning Life Summer Camp

Tuesday, July 11, 2017

SQCC hosted a group from the Learning Life Summer Camp on 11 July. The group started their visit with a tour of SQCC’s permanent exhibition, through which they learned more about Oman’s culture, traditional handicrafts, history and Omani dress. The group then explored Oman's maritime legacy through SQCC's new exhibition From Sinbad to the Shabab Oman: A Seafaring Legacy. In the exhibition, each camper discovered Omani maritime history through interactive iPad displays and maritime artifacts.  

After visiting both exhibitions, the camp group also learned about Omani frankincense. Each camper painted their own traditional Omani majmar, or frankincense burner. SQCC provided paint, brushes, patterns, and replica majmars for the group to paint traditional designs or make up new patterns.
