    Aquarium and Museum, entrance 25 dirhams, you can occupy yourself for an hour or so, and so nothing special if you go specifically, not very.

    Both my boys (5 & 3 years) enjoyed the experience. Kids friendly and safe. Reasonably priced entrance ticket. Well designed and maintained aquarium. With several type of fishes in different colours and sizes in addition to other sea creatures like jellyfish, seahorses, star fishes. A good 2 hour activity. Kids were looking for a turtle but we couldn't find. I wish Sharjah advertises more it's activities as I came to know of Sharjah aquarium by chance. Will defiantly come back.
