Went there accidentally and were invited to participate on the culture weeks, were every week a different country is presenting themselves. We were kindly looked after by the representative of Bahrain, he showed us around and organized us food and drinks based on traditional receipts. Very enjoyable time.

So well organised - from layout to depth of information - my only regret was that I wouldn't recall every detail when I left. I wish everywhere did Heritage museums so well. Perfect for any age group and presented in a variety of ways to suit all learning types!

It originally opened in 2005 in the Heritage Area.The museum highlights Sharjah’s heritage, rich culture of UAE people and the local residents over the past decades. When walking round you get a sense of local value, Arabic customs and traditions. Its nicely laid out

The Sharjah Hertiage Museum is fantastic to visit to learn about the local heritage of the Emirate. Beautifully designed with a layout to take you through the Emirates creation as you walk around. This is a must do if you are visiting Sharjah!

Went to visit Sharjah Heritage Museum and found that it had rich insights on the history and the heritage of the UAE. It is a self guided tour but it is very well organized and you get what was intended for visitors to get.
