“Only for kids”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

The aquarium is dated and in no ways can be compared to what you can find in Dubai. Anyway there is not much to see in Sharjah so if one is visiting maybe give it a try. Behind the aquarium there is possibly the restaurant with the best location near the water in the whole city.

“Worth the 1 hour. Especially the museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2014 via mobile

If you visit this museum make sure you request a taxi to come back or to wait for you. Otherwise you may end up stuck.
We bought tickets for both museum and aquarium and they were both excellent to visit. The aquarium is well done and I found it smaller thab Dubai mall aquarium but I found it better organized.

“Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2014

I liked The Aquarium most, the area, the exibited items, a very nice chance to get to know the history and its people. The exhibition is well organized, good observation, cosy place and rather fresh atmosphere. The tickets are low in price. You can easily enjoy it all by yourself.

“Small interesting underwater life!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2014

It is smaller than Dubai aquarium, but is very interesting. Most importantly it is not as crowded as Dubai aquarium. And it is not inside a mall. It is just in sea shore and surroundings are very nice with fountains, so you can take a walk as well (a very rare thing in UAE). I liked very much seahorses and sea stars. Here you can see them so close. Overall it's a good experience!
