This definitely has a great value as its fee is reasonable (about $6.50 US for adults). It isn't the biggest aquarium, but it is nice and worth checking out.

Most of the residents must have never visit this place, and only when you get inside is when u realise it's worth it. Must visit.

The Sharjah Aquarium is one of the best places you can take your kids..if they are lovers of marine life.Its entry is very less priced and we were even given some free memorabilia when we were leaving the place.

They are showing the Gulf fishes with special details.. It is a great low-cost option. It is 25 Dirhams for adults, 15 for children, and the ticket will also get you admission to the Maritime Museum next door. The aquarium is typically quiet and not crowded but usually on weekends it a bit crowded....

Not the biggest aquarium but a fine place to while away a couple of hours. Some great fish of all shapes and sizes albeit the displays need to be updated as they are showing their age. Well set out and has a gift shop for the youngsters. You also get entry to the maritime museum as part of you ticket.... More
