A good place to learn of local history, and ancient village architecture. Before oil, many villagers earned their living by collecting pearls, irrigation management, and through other crafts and activities.

I would do a trip to Qasr Al Hosn... its in the heart of town and has a lot to offer. You could always do the Heritage Village in the evening. The village is interesting, but the Qasr has more to offer.
