  • Great place for children to get acquainted to marine life... Varied collection of marine life including some of smallest creatures like sea horse, starfish, etc. One must also pay a visit to Sharjah Maritime museum when visiting Sharjah Aquarium. Great learning experience and ancient means showcased beautifully. A small play area for children also available in the vicinity...

  • Affordable entry rate.. Didn't have to spend much time but was worth it . Unique and everything kept well

  • Great aquarium with many fish. The place is centered around one big tank with sharks, turtles, just to name a few. The walking path takes one through the tank in a tunnel and then over the tank on a bridge. Thus one can see the fish from many angles. There is also a separate shark tank at the beginning. Overall the aquarium is very educational and great for kids and adults. At the end is a snack bar with a fantastic view of Sharjah. There is also a seafood restaurant somewhere in the building.
