  • Shardzhskij visited Oceanarium, really liked people a little, you can safely observe fish make good photo, there is a small café where on the terrace overlooking the promenade. Tickets cost 25 dirham, it is four times cheaper than in Dubai Mall.

  • 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...
