It's a very small museum that displays the old occupations of the people of Sharjah. When you pay you also get to go into the aquarium which is also nice.

Beautiful setting. Nice modern architecture of the building, very nice museum with lots of information displayed in a very interesting way shedding light on the history of Sharjah and the sea. Again a very good effort from Sharjah / Shurooq to promote the culture.

Collection of nice illustrations about past pearl industry and boat making techniques. Very interesting and useful for kids educational purpose too. It has a game called load the ship, which gives insight of load balancing in cargo loading.

Genuine and fascinating display of technology of the maritime merchant and fishing boats in the Arabian gulf area and the wider commercial region. I wish I would have spent a longer time to read and listen to all media info properly.
