Small castle which summarizes the history of Khasab and Musandam very well. The castle looks like being renovated recently and they put effort in displaying the life of people in former times.

Very educational on the local cultures and traditions. Not all of the museum has a/c so can get a little warm walking around in Summer as we were. Good 60 minute stop.

You get more than just views from the ramparts for your admission price (500Bs) Informative displays show life in Musandam through the ages. A well maintained fort, well worth a visit. Although it closes at 4pm, they sweep you out at around 3.30pm so give...More
