Sharjah Museum Of Islamic Civilization, Sharjah Reviews
A truly remarkable museum offering a very rare glimpse into the Islamic past with exquisite attention to details. Several themes exist such as science, art, wars, architecture all of which are systematically laid out.
Sharjah Museum of Islamic Civilization is a beautiful indoor place to visit if you have interest in Islamic history, authorities have put really great efforts to to arrange and maintain all this.
After visiting the extremely primitive and very poor exhibits that we were taken to in Dubai, I was surprised and delighted by this museum. The quantity, quality and presentation of what was exhibited was superb, very professional. I only regret the little time that our tour assigned to this museum. I was only able to see a very small fraction of what was available. If I could, I would go back with much more time to view it all.
We were staying in Dubai but desperately wanted to visit the Museum of Islamic Civilization in Sharjah so made the hour and half long trip, alas, we were left very disappointed. Its more a museum of general cultures throughout history as apposed to specific Islamic civilization. Much of the exhibits on display didn't give me any feel of what the religion was about, other than a section of mosque architecture throughout the world. I would have liked to see more things related to the Prophet, his companions, and other famous Islamic figures.
Tried to visit with family, but the lady at reception refused to give ticket saying she needs correct 25 dhs change. I was having 100 dhs only. Very bad experience.
