  • We were with the baby in November. Decided to go to the aquarium as it is within walking distance of the hotel. The entrance unlike Dubai is very cheap. There are no queues, everything is clean, the chair is in perfect condition. Yes, it is smaller in size than in Dubai, but people are many times smaller, you can safely stand at each aquarium, take a photo. The choice of fish is great, the child loved it. The ticket price also includes a visit to a nearby maritime museum. It's also a very pleasant educational place! Thank you, everyone loved it!

  • To be honest I liked it more in the maritime museum, which is nearby, and where you can go by the ticket bought to the Aquarium. There are fish, there are sharks, there was also a moray emanator, a small tunnel where the fish swim overhead too. For those who have never been to such places, out may be impressive, but in my opinion a normal, standard set. Tickets for adults 25 dirhams, for children 15, nearby there is a boat station, from where you can go to Dubai on a river tram, well, and the embankment, which stretches to the center and in the evening you can take great photos.

  • A good destination in Sharjah for a family day out. What I love about the aquarium is that it has a wide range of sea life within a decent size building, and you can get up close and personal with the sharks! Amazing for the kids and none of the hustle and bustle of bigger aquariums. A hidden gem in Sharjah and a must visit. Nice cafe inside, a fish restaurant tucked away behind the aquarium and stunning views across Al Khan Lagoon as well. Last time there, your ticket also gives you access to the Maritime Museum opposite. Well done Sharjah!
  • Educational place you get to see alot of species. Nicely organized with every tiny information regarding the species. You can spend good quality time here with your family. It also has a coffee shop with an amazing view of the sea.
  • A very nice aquarium, that is informative. It informs you about the variety of fish found in and around the shores of the UAE. The area around the aquarium is very well maintained and beautiful also. The ticket for the aquarium also gives you access to the neighbouring maritime museum, which is a treasure of boats old and new that sailed the seas in the past. A history of fishing and pearling is elaborated upon and fascinates anyone wanting an insight into life in the Emirates before the discovery of oil. Well worth a visit if you are in Sharjah.
  • Sharjah Aquarium has good collection of marine species including lion fish, sea horses etc. Entry fee to Aquarium also includes free entry to museum which is just opp of aquarium. Its situated in Al Khan area near corniche. Surrounding are also is beautiful. Minimum 3 to 4 hours we can spend here easily.
  • Very cool actually. Houses some beautiful and unique species from the ocean. You can get extremely close to the aquariums. Water clarity is marvelous. The ticket offer complimentary visit to adjacent maritime meauem.
