  • Were in the Centre of Sharjah, near Mega mall and want to visit some cultural interesting place nearby. On the map we saw this museum. From the outset, did not even know what's in it for the Museum. And when visiting saw empty and a bit of a strange space. Cheap (total 5 dirhams per person) and the availability of spare time convinced us to go. And we have not regretted! In a hangar several aircraft stands, in some you can log cabins. Then go room with documents, maps and pieces of the old airport and pilots. Hall, dedicated to the dream man fly, Hall with exhibits of birds flying insects, flying dinosaurs and many other interesting things. Despite the fact that at this time in the Museum were only my wife, a worker saw the courtesy of all the rooms, and at the end, although he was in a small cinema showing old footage of this place when it was the airport. In General, turned out very interesting and informative. Recommend to visit

  • I love these places, vintage. which are associated with airports, aircraft, etc. When I visited a street Museum aircraft in Moscow. But compared to the Sharjah airport simply cannot be! Here's a story, great area, you can see that still survived from ancient times. However, you can even understand what few tourists go to this museum. You may be afraid that something collapse. Although all secure! In General, it was very interesting to resemble, look, learn the history of this airport. If not the company SHANG TOURS, we would with his brother and friends never got to tour with this Museum, because just simply did not know of its existence!
