  • Despite the fact that I was in large gardens, Aquarium. Gladly went there in rainy weather, so much so that it is located in the vicinity of the hotel, where rested. Adult ticket-25 DOF, child-15 dirham. Liked the interactive games which are in the Aquarium, and, of course, the inhabitants themselves.

  • This definitely has a great value as its fee is reasonable (about $6.50 US for adults). It isn't the biggest aquarium, but it is nice and worth checking out.  more »
  • Most of the residents must have never visit this place, and only when you get inside is when u realise it's worth it. Must visit.  more »

  • One of the must see places in Sharjah, very well organized, showing many kinda if Arab gulf and Arabian sea aquatic life , and all ages will enjoy , also nice play ground for small ones
  • a very good place to spend time with your family ....we spent almost 3 hrs total in the museum and the aquarium... another add on is that the open beach is right behind it....so had a good time there too...
