The fort is located on the edge of the town, its an interesting place to visit tell you about some of the history of the town. Showing how people had lived through the ages.

Great value at 500 baisa per adult. Really good displays of historic Omani life and lots of excellent information. Fabulous views of khasab from the towers. Small car park out front and very easy to find near Lulu supermarket.

From the outside you might be tempted to drive past - don't. A great place to spend an hour and learn a bit.

Small but interesting - we really enjoyed our trip to Khasab Castle - the inner tower has been made into great little museum. Well worth a visit.

Nothing unlike many other castles/ forts around the world. Worth it if you are really interested in history, as there is a lot of information in a museum setting, however not recommended for people with kids, as it doesn't offer much of an exciting experience.
