Wonderful visit to Sharjah Aquarium

Excellent display of underwater creatures. Worth visiting the place with children. They have a good collection and it can take more than 2 hours to enjoy seeing all.

Not very different from say Singapore Aquarium but it makes up with its spaciousness. Can visit if you have time in Sharjah.

The Aquarium is quaint and probably great for school trips, otherwise, can be explored in 30-40 minutes. There are modern features like electronic info boards. But 21 century hasn't arrived to the reception where they don't take credit cards only cash. And if you expect service with the smile, you are in the wrong place.

The aquarium focuses on fish found in Sharjah's waters, which is a great way for a small facility to offer something not found elsewhere. There are several places where you can walk through tunnels with the fish above and beside you. Your ticket also gives you admission to the adjacent maritime museum, which features exhibits on Sharjah's maritime history, pearling,... More

It's a nice place to take the kids. The Dubai Aquarium.is better, so if you don't mind driving to Dubai, you can skip this

They have an introduction musuem to the history of emirates and then a well stocked aquarium. Many fishes are not seen in any other aquarium here and the tunnel is worth the walk with fishes all around the tunnel. Kids will love the place.. The area is small comparatively so wont get tired.
