Absolutely loved this museum. Great and interesting displays and suitable for all ages from small children to teenagers. Very affordable also, like all the Sharjah museums. 2a 2c is only 30aed. Lovely displays of all kinds of artefacts from pottery, jewellery and fossils. Highly recommended 👍🏼

Unlike what is commonly assumed, the Arab civilization predates the advent of Islam and the many excavations in Sharjah and other parts of UAE bring this out. The Sharjah Archaeological Museum is an eye-opener, showing a number of unearthed treasures from the past, all well laid-out, explained and organized. What I like about this museum was the focus on how people lived during those times, instead of just a random collection of pots, arms and implements, which one sees elsewhere. Another nice thing was the complementary audio guide provided to me at the reception, which helped shed new light on the excavations. The museum was slightly on the darker side, but this seemed to be on purpose to give people a feel of the olden times. Of particular note is the section on Al-Buhais graveyard with an explanation of how the remains found told so much about how he people lived and dressed. A good place to visit for any one interested in archaeology and it costs only AED 10. I preferred it to the Science Museum next door. One can spend 1 hour or so here.

I decided to go to Museum of Archeology in Sharjah for their temporary exhibition of “The Echo of Caravans: Pre-Islamic Civilization Sites in Saudi Arabia” (until Jan 31, 2019). I enjoyed this exhibition a lot and since getting a tourist visa to KSA is very difficult, I did not want to miss it. Plus KSA is a big country, it requires commitment to visit these major sites on one trip. The museum also houses many precious and significant artifacts from the archeological sites in UAE. There are many things that I love, but specifically, the gold horse bridles. The reconstruction of the tomb of Al Buhais 18 is another favorite - especially how the jewelry of one of the women buried there was excavated as it was found settling on her crushed skull. Very interesting. For archeology enthusiasts, this museum is a must-see.
