Abu Dhabi before oil, very interesting. The tour that we did was great to visit the Mosque and to be driven around the city to look.

The fort was rebuilt a few years ago. Since then it has never been opened to the public. In fact it is not a fort at all! There is a tower in the middle if the channel (beware taking photos, some have been arrested) and an old police station.

This fort has a very valuable signification to the history of the Abu Dhabi. It may not look like much but do go to see it as it is a very historical site indeed. It has a rich history and holds a valuable story of life in the past. If you are standing near this or viewing it just from a car from the bridge, know you are standing on the grounds of a very important historical land in time.

Doesn't look that big from the outside (or even from within the gates of the fort) but there is a good sized exhibition area underground.
