  • 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.

  • This place is amazing I have ever visited in Sharjah! I was so excited at Islamic culture studies there. There are beautiful textiles, religious articles and so many photos. You will be able to learn a lot of Knowledge.

  • Amazing space and architecture. A real tour of the arts, crafts and culture of the Islamic civilisation and it's "tributaries" across the globe. A tour of Islam and it's many influences and contributions to the history of human evolution.

  • A place to visit must if you are interested in Civilization and History...
