Nizwa Fort gives you a great insight into life in Oman many years ago. The fort has been very well restored and for 500 baizas (1 Euro) you can spend an enjoyable couple of hours looking at all the great exhibits, reading the informative boards and heading in and out of different rooms such as date store rooms, Majili, etc and up and down stairs experiencing the different levels of the fort. The very top level has a wonderful 360 degree view of the mountains and date plantations surrounding Nizwa. Photography is permitted throughout the fort.
I particularly enjoyed reading about the murder holes located over the doorways throughout the fort. It took us about 2 hours to see everything. Make sure you visit the souk before or after your visit to the fort keeping in mind that the souk will shut down at 1pm even though the fort remains open throughout the day.

Well renovated with not many doors locked. Great views of the Oasis. The exhibition has some nice pieces on display and gives a good insight of its past. A must see.
