An interesting wander around the old Palace gives an insight into how the Sheikh's family lived and hosted guests. There are some artifacts on show and the palace has a variety of rooms on display showing the way the royal rooms use to be. Excellent family portraits of the family going back over the generations. Free to park and enter, would have been good to see more personal items associated with this incredible family.
It's a must see place. You can really see where the king was living earlier time. It's very well maintained. There is some dedicated place to sit and relax. Entry is free.
