Cab ride from Sharjah city should cost you around 20AED. We planned our trip on a weekday. Besides us there was a group of school children. Staff at the... More

After few tries on google map i found the location. It is near to sharjah national park. Nice place for kids and adults also. With fun and science knowledge. Even no burden on pocket. Only timmings are not good so its crowded on weekends.

The Birthday was Science themed and the Museum staff were great with children and they did a lot of cool scientific games that were fun for kids but educational at the same time. After the party we took time to tour the Museum... More

The Sharjah Science Museum offers intelligent fun for the whole family. The displays exploring the science from optical illusions to biology insights have something in store for everyone. The educational experience gives a chance to children and adults to explore experiments hands-on, this providing the former with fresh information, and the latter with a useful reminder of their years in...
