  • Once being at the edge of the city and protecting it from the ground this Fort is now one of the very nice museums in Sharjah, surrounded by tall buildings, but still reminding of how the life looked like here a century ago.
  • Again old memories! You must go and visit it. You'll love it.
  • A Historic place and a must visit in UAE/ Sharjah A very important place and a must see if you are in Sharjah and UAE. It a historical site and right at the Heritage area. The fort is small but impressive and gives an insight into the historical past of this wonderful city. Its well maintained and has exhibits and artifacts which are interesting. A must see for History and Heritage lovers.
  • A small museum which can give you an insight into Sharjah's history. We were late to reach and hence had to rush. You need at least 2 hours if your are a serious visitor. If there was a guide it would have been great.
  • A beautiful place, with antique Facade
