  • You must visit this place. It is amazing and the fees so reasonable. AED 20 for adults and 15 for kids and if you want Nice photo you pay 50 as optional. Wide range of fish specially sharks.
  • Affordable compared to other similar options in Dubai. Impressive collection. Value for money. Ample parking space. Drivers paradise.
  • Great place to visit for families with small kids! A must to visit if you are in Sharjah. It will be an hour well spent!!
  • Fantastic place to spend time with kids. Maybe not so impressive loke Dubai Mall one, however has one biggest advantage (regardless price ;) you can see the fish separately and admire the same aquarium from diffrent perspective, so kids may focus and profit more. Same ticket for naval museum (take something on, as AC is crazy). Nice and well shaded play area in between museums
  • My only opinion is. AMAZING. WHY? Cheap. Also my kids r 3 and 4. They had a lovely time. My son who is 3 was soo excited he didn't stop jumping around from start to finish. I really wanted to take them to Dubai Mall Aquarium, but to be honest we saved money and they loved it. The restaurant around the corner however was pricey. Maybe way before or go just a little further after.
