  • Visiting everywhere in the city, and looking all came in the gallery were provided with various pictures. very impressed. but most of all what struck so it's like a modern Cafe done next. accessibility is best by taxi but if you want extreme sports you can and walk away.

  • Etihad Modern Art was a loss of time, very small with very few pictures I didn't like at all, at the entrance there is a bar with recycled wave which is nice, if you like art and go to Sharjah don't miss the Museum of modern art in this Emirate

  • Interesting place. Exhibitions change every few weeks/months. They also have a nice cafe
  • I love the place and the foods were sooooo delicious! Esp their fries with parmesan cheese 😍😍😍❤️❤️❤️
  • Love it...all the cafe inerior built from recycled and it look so relaxing, you have 3 sections: one is the art exhibition, museum and antiques
  • Nothing to say but "you should visit the place and enjoy each corner"
  • Great place to dine, visit a local museum and discover your inner artist!
