Very informative and intersting. Children can enjoy the domestic animal section where they can interact with animals such as camels donkeys goats and feed them. There is also a separate section on science which is an interactive museum to learn the basic concepts of science. The icing on the cake is the indoor wildlife center which can be visited any...

It was nice idea to keep people inside (airconditioned room) and animals out. My kids loved to feed animals.

Over the holidays we took our whole family to the Arabian Wildlife Center in Sharjah. We did not have time to visit the Natural History Museum but did spend time at the Wildlife Center as well as the Children's petting farm. This visit was the highlight of the visit to Sharjah for our 5 year old niece and 8 year... More

This morning marked my son and my second visit to the Arabian Wildlife Center, our first visit being back in August to experience the Center itself. As others have clarified, this is a complex of three sections 1) a Natural History Museum 2) the Wildlife Center and 3) a Childrens Farm. Today we visited the Childrens Farm and it was... More

The wildlife centre consists of 3 parts: In the natural history museum you can learn about the birth of the Earth and live on Earth. It was very quiet although we visited UAE in peak season. In the children zoo you can feed goats and sheep that is really nice The wildlife center itself is a big zoo, some part... More

Once you enter the place toward the right is the children petting farm(which we visited second last).. Firstly we went towards the exhibition which starts with the creepy crawlies then the big cats.. Only issue is we cant take photographs there :( which is understandable since some dumb humans tend to switch on their flash and take photos of animals(which... More

Its about 30km from Sharjah city centre and can be visited during any weather. There are 3 areas. 1 Farm-excellent for children and quite clean. 2 Wild life centre- You will be inside but the animals will be outside and is separated by a glass. You need not go to a zoo to see animals. 3. Botanical-interesting, for science lovers.

It started out really good with the snake and spider exhibition but when we came to the bigger animals it broke my heart to see the small cages. The leopard was looking extremely bored doing number eights in front of the glass.
