We visited around midday in may, perhaps not the best time to visit, as a Brit I’ve never experienced 43 degrees before. However it was lovely and quiet, the restoration is fantastic, it’s like being taken back to when it was in use. Our guide was enthusiastic and friendly, very happy we visited.

The fort is located in the central old town of Nizwa, in the hustle and bustle of the souks, Nizwa Fort looks really majestic and is an imposing feature of the whole city. Its definitely worth a visit.
However, once inside there is not much to see or do except to lookout onto the great city, the main parapet and tower has a 360 degree view of the whole city and beyond... great for an afternoon visit whilst staying in Nizwa.

World heritage site - great to visit and explore but not much interaction with the visitors.
some areas were off limits like climbing up the tower which was a shame.

The fort is telling you long stories about Oman's empire and how the eegineering knowledge reflected to have a complete castle like this centering this wonderful city

A good fort to visit. Fully restored. There is a nominal entry fee for adults and children.
Take a cap and sun glasses. There is a little souk in the fort area for souvenirs. Most shops close in the afternoon

The heritage, the uniqueness and the magnificent architectural work. A great spot to gain knowledge & to take amazing photos for Nizwa from the top of the fort.

It is a bigger and well rebuilt fort. We visited it short before sundown 😉👍. Something which I would recommend to do. You will enjoy an amazing view all over the city at the amazing sundown golden shine

Heavily restored fort, castle and farm - really interesting museum that does a great job explaining the history of the building and area (with good English content)

"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.
