  • Sharjah museums surprised me. Not merely surprised-admired! History, conscious, here the State approximately one hundred and fifty years! And museums, studies and research papers a lot! Like all registered and done! Without bombast and frills, like in Dubai, but accurately, carefully, with skill and love for the country, let this small! Spend time in Sharjah not only nalezhanie on the beach, but also for self-study. Like where to get and what to visit perfectly wrote Anna M recall below.

  • Sharjah museums includes 16 museums. Sharjah Aquarium sold a single ticket to visit them. For 4 days, I managed to get into the Aquarium, Maritime Museum time, Heritage Museum, calligraphy, art, Al Hirsch, Islamic culture, the archaeological museum and the Science Museum. Tellingly-museums are located next to each other: Aquarium + Marine, Science + Archaeological. Cultural heritage museums, calligraphy and schools, as well as another 2 are under construction are located in the Heart of Sharjah "-an incredibly East and desolate block. With children cool go to the Science Museum and the Museum of the archaeological discoveries. In the Museum of the history of Islam there is a Hall with scientific discoveries, where each layout you can touch. During our visit, most museums are empty, without visitors. Which is weird, because the majority of the exhibits are clear and without descriptions (given in Arabic and English, respectively). Cool museums, entrance fee is affordable. If you came to rest in the "cultural" Emirate-go to at least one and you won't regret it.

  • Excellent place to explore and spend time in the sunset time. free entrance. recommend to visit during Sharjah binnale. Great art works!
  • It is an excellent museum for art lovers. The entrance with wooden door. The museum is fascinating and everyone stay typically for an hour. .. The upper floor had more traditional oil paintings on canvas and wood. ..collection in the museum is very good and I think it's worth visiting. Finally entry is kept free. ...
  • In an area with very interesting structures. The museum itself is free to visit, & very large. Make sure you allow for plenty of time. The temporary exhibit took a lot of time to go through.
  • Good place for free. Many goods. And the waiters are very friendly.
  • Art fans, this is your place to be over the holiday take a break . Sharjah’s Art Museum landscapes not just a everlasting gallery of canvases by famous artists from the Middle East but hosts a variety of workshops on a regular basis as well.
