"The Nizwa Fort is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Oman due to the fact that it is an amazing example of old Omani architecture that provides an illustration of the way Omani people used to live in ancient times". The Quote was provided by Oman tripper. Based on experience its too good to be true.I' ve been here many times.Although its pricey tot he extent that the entrance fee for non-locals are costly. The historical and picturesque fort not also contains many exhibits and artifacts displayed in each of the rooms of the fort but also has gift shops,illustration areas and restos to eat and drink.There are plenty of grocery shops and rest rooms around.Typical visit is in the morning time (8 -9 am) One and a half drive from Muscat and MCT airport. A must see when travelling from and to Jabal Akhdar.

The fort is very impressive. Well renovated. The museum is not so interesting though. The entrance for foreigners is more than for locals and very high compared to other forts nearby.

The irony is that the authenticity of the fort heritage has somewhat lost due to extensive renovation. Pricey entry fee for the expat and tourist. However still a main tourist attraction due to limited choice when one visit to Nizwa.

Me and my husband have seen almost all the forts in Oman. The most beautiful one is Jebreen. But if you are in Nizwa you should also see this one. Try to be there at sunset. Get into the Fort around 5 in the afternoon. They are open until 8 pm. It costs 5 Riyal.
