  • Went to Sharjah Aquarium because in this area go nowhere with children nearby, tickets are expensive, do not take credit cards, had to pay cash. A small Aquarium, Aquarium reminds Esposition center Crocus Expo in Moscow. For the same tickets you can go to the Maritime Museum (opposite), so do not throw away the tickets immediately. The territory of the Aquarium and the Maritime Museum is small, maximum time takes an hour. There is a playground, wooden ships and boats. You can sit by the Museum and see the Bay. The Aquarium has a small café and gift shop. Also during our visit no credit cards accepted.

  • Nice little day trip, not the biggest of aquariums but can easily spend 2-3 hours there. Price 15aed for adults and 10aed for children which is definitely well spent. Nice views outside of the lagoon.  more »

  • A simple yet satisfying, and cheap aquarium. At the entrance you can take a photograph to the back of a green screen, which you can buy if you like it. Soon you'll be greeted by various fish species, fun facts, and a few history lessons. Escalator is available, and moving with a stroller is easy. Near the end, there is a coffee and gift shop, and a balcony––a truly beautiful display of water and land. Highly recommended.My only opinion is. AMAZING. WHY? Cheap.The restaurant around the corner however was pricey. Maybe way before or go just a little further after.
  • The place is nice and cool at the Al Khan Beach, overlooking the sea. Nicely created and a very informative place for all the students and knowledge-hungry people. Price could be little on a higher side (or rather can say could have evenly priced for family). Not very exotic but is worth a visit. good recreation of artificial mangroves and other corals found in the Arabian Gulf. Fishes are handsome numbers and variety, but not very exotic
  • A nice place to visit while in Sharjah. A good place to bring the kids too. They with certainly enjoy it. For me it was much better than Dubai aquarium. Sharjah aquarium is creative, informative and fun too. Good view from its balcony. Nice cafeteria. Good lightings... Its a must visit.
  • A must visit place if you are around Sharjah, Ajman or Dubai. It has some rare and beautifully kept sea animals. Very nicely built with a small canteen for refreshment and a play area for the small kids as well. They also have lot of promotional and cultural programmes presented at various season. The ticket price is very nominal and taking pictures from your phone is allowed. They also conduct some workshops for the kids to learn the fun way.
  • Wonderful place to have a leisurely day with family! Especially for people with kids. The outdoor activities and view are breathtaking. A must visit for sea creature enthusiasts. There are water based activities for kids and a play area along with a huge boat. Maritime museum is adjacent to it and is marvelous.
