What people are saying:

I came here at night when they closed, so I can't go in. I can still appreciate the uniqueness of this building. The tall white walls and the cream tower protect the contents. They are also finishing work in the square area outside the building. Most of the paving stones are filled, only a few gaps need to be filled. There is a building on the other side of the lake. The only problem is that there doesn't seem to be any shade here, but it looks like this area is still under construction, so it looks much better now.

    New legacy development at the heart of city

    A nice development of the true culture of UAE, with lots of books, arts and culture to all age groups. This has lots of parking place to facilitate the visitors.

    Over restored

    This old fort is an interesting visit to see the rooms and read about the history. However, it looks new because the building has been over restored.
