Everybody associates UAE with malls and theme parks so when I heard about I was really intrigued and went to this place. I had some trouble reaching the place as the taxidriver was unsure of its location. The museum was really good with well thought out exhibits with knowledgeable guides. The museum is sure to be a hit with the... More

Microscopes, Illusions, human body models, hot air balloon, tons of scientific games, a planetarium.. and the best, the plasma globe. Great for all age groups especially 3+, even adults can have plenty of fun here. There is a sweet little play space for the toddlers too, with lots of toys for imaginative play. Not too crowded, great as an after... More

I have children of 11, 13, 15 and 22 and this was a great museum to entertain them in. They all really enjoyed the visit and it promoted interaction between the children as well as with the activities. It's not too busy either and the gift shop has some great stuff in it. It's a place we would go back... More

My 9 years daughter mentioned this place as the best place we visited in our journey which includes many activities for her in dubai and abu Dhabi. It's something unique in our countries to blend fun with education like this. - indoor -cheap tickets -3 hours minimum -suitable from 3 to 15 years

Everywhere does their science museums a little differently. Sharjah's is a really great experience for kids. All the exhibits are hands-on and there is plenty to interest all ages. There is also an under-4 play area with play houses and scoot-along toys. At certain times, the staff run science demonstrations in the auditorium and shows in the planetarium. And you... More

A 9-year old daughter loved it because she was able to touch and experiment with all the exhibits. And of course, I enjoyed it because my kid enjoyed it. For an adult, there is not much to do.
