  • Good place to know about the Islam, ancient scientific instruments, coins, calligraphy and portraits. It is very calm and quiet place to learn about the history

  • If you could only do one thing in Sharjah, visiting this museum would be a great choice. It's collection is vast, rich and lovingly presented. It's exhibits consistenty offer a gentle, joyful and informative look at Islam, from a variety of perspectives (historical, creed, scientific, artistic, etc.) The museum has a simple cafe, an attractive gift shop and plenty of parking - - - but it's crown jewel is the interior of it's main dome. Be sure to take the stairs or elevator to the very top floor to sit in a huge armchair and gaze at the amazing tiled rendering of the constellations.

  • It contains many Islamic history and I enjoy visiting the place. And it Improves my knowledge of Islamic history.

  • Nice peaceful place ...I like it but some of the gallery items are repeated and just not given enough information ... But still a good place to know the Islamic culture and things used in good old days ... If you are visiting Sharjah then you must go

  • i like to visit it soon shj Gov very carefully about all this so it should be best
