  • Museum features traditional maritime history of Sharjah, with traditional vessel displayed. Traditional Tools for making the vessels are also on display. The museum also has a good collection on the traditional pearling and trading industry of Sharjah.
  • A nice place to visit with children if you are in Sharjah. Aquarium is not very big, but nice. You can visit Maritime museum next to it at the same price. There is a nice playground for children outside.
