We really enjoyed Jabrin Fort. Our children loved walking around and exploring the fort. Also 1OR compared to 15OR in Nizwa Fort is a great deal. Make sure if visiting on a Friday you go early since they close at 11AM.

This is an amazing place to learn about the rich architecture of Oman. A labyrinth in which every room has a purpose and well constructed. A beautiful building

A local recommended we visit this fort and they were right. Better maintained and more interseting than the other forts in the area, including Nizwa. Has amazing ceilings and also audio-guided tour included in the price. Just visit this fort.
