Sharjah is home to a slew of outstanding museums showcasing art, science, aviation and maritime exhibitions.

Then uncover the emirate’s fascinating beginnings at Sharjah Heritage Area, wandering through winding streets lined with restored traditional Arabian houses and perusing unique treasures at the pretty Al Arsa souk.
Fans of art and nature will love Sharjah Aquarium, which is home to jellyfish, moray eels and blacktip reef sharks, and Al Noor Island, a peaceful enclave featuring a butterfly house and exotic gardens dotted with sculptures and art installations. Stroll along the waterside at Khalid Lagoon with its impressive fountain spurting water 160ft into the air, and take a ride on the ‘Eye of the Emirates’ giant wheel for spectacular bird’s-eye views over the city.
