Neat! Free and worth a visit if you have the time. The most negative thing was that it was difficult to find via Google Maps. Google Maps took us to the bus terminal, but we eventually found our way there, just at a secondary gate...More

Definitely worth the visit. Cradle of Arab civilization. Very uncrowded. Good museum. You can wander around at your own pace with audio guide.

In my opinion, this place is the no.1 must go place in Bahrain. I went there for three times, next time I want to try it in the evening.

not to sure where the diplomatic area is, but very poor public transport. you can take bus number 5 from Manama, then walk half an hour to the site. The fort is also easy to reach via car; it’s a 10-minute drive from central... More
