This is a well preserved fort with exhibits that provide a glimpse into life in the 19th and early 20th century. All exhibits have excellent English translation and explanations and the castle is well worth a visit.

Visit the past of this place with the illustrative exhibits in the museum. Walking on the Fort Wall is an experience. You will also glimpse an Omani Home, the culture of the people, its geography, etc.

A very interesting Fort it really does look as you might imagine on the desert. Inside are artifacts showing how the Omani people lived as bedouins so many centuries ago. Palm houses rebuilt to show how everything is utilised on the tree to supplement their...More

Have to love the Arabs. The gatekeeper wanted to knock off 45 minutes early so we got 15 minutes to do a whirlwind foot around the fort. Worth visiting but come during the morning or very early afternoon if you want time to work through...More
