Sharjah Aquarium, Sharjah Reviews

  • Wonderful place to have a leisurely day with family! Especially for people with kids. The outdoor activities and view are breathtaking. A must visit for sea creature enthusiasts. There are water based activities for kids and a play area along with a huge boat. Maritime museum is adjacent to it and is marvelous.

  • The key to enjoying this aquarium is in understanding it's collection: the fish here are all local to Sharjah. If you visit this aquarium with the understanding that you will only see regional marine life, then you won't be disappointed. The price of admission grants you entry to the adjacent Maritime Museum, which offers superbly detailed exhibits about the relationship that local people have had with the sea. Viewed together with the aquarium, the result is a keen understanding of Sharjah as a coastal center.

  • Very nice place. Awesome views from corniche. Outside small play area for kids is available. Ample parking also available. Good views for photography. My kid enjoys outisde in play area more than inside aquarium.....

  • Very nice place. From the entrance you feel that it's special. The sharks are the first sight and it's just beautiful. They have a nice cafeteria also. With a nice water view.

  • Very nice place, quite interesting aquarium with good view and variety of sea animals. There is a pedestrian tube under the aquarium is well. This place has souvenir store, coffee and playing area for children near by entrance. Buying the ticket to aquarium (25 AED) you also get a permission to the maritime museum.
