We enjoyed the museum very much. It's a beautiful location on the waterfront. Entrance is very reasonable and also allows enter to the aquarium next door. The building is modern, open, airy and full of natural light. We found the exhibits to be excellent, with very good signage, videos and interactive displays detailing the exhibit as related to the history... More

It's a very small museum that displays the old occupations of the people of Sharjah. When you pay you also get to go into the aquarium which is also nice.

Lovely museum, small but perfectly formed! Beautifully designed displays and plenty of information about Sharjah's maritime past. The use of the life size exhibits give visitors a much better idea. Next to the aquarium so well worth getting a combined ticket and making a day of it. Nice kids play area between the museum and aquarium if its not too... More

Beautiful setting. Nice modern architecture of the building, very nice museum with lots of information displayed in a very interesting way shedding light on the history of Sharjah and the sea. Again a very good effort from Sharjah / Shurooq to promote the culture.

Collection of nice illustrations about past pearl industry and boat making techniques. Very interesting and useful for kids educational purpose too. It has a game called load the ship, which gives insight of load balancing in cargo loading.
