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

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.

Great place with lots of activities that explain everyday science in a wonderful and interesting manner to children. You can spend 2 to 2.5 hours there easily and your kids will learn a lot. Do not miss it if you are nearby.

We arrived on holiday to tour the cultural site of Sharjah and this place was like the London Science museum.

Problem was just getting to this place taxi drivers are clueless so... More

Entrance fee is 10 AED but it is worth to visit. It is very interesting for children. They can spend more than 2 hours and enjoy. Scientific subjects are shown with simple examples.
