Although we were in Sharjah for only two nights, we visited this museum and found it worth the time. It's fairly big with galleries on ground and first floor. They have artifacts from all over the Muslim world. Some of the galleries display various coverings (Kiswa) of Kaaba (I didn't know there have been so many types), scientific instruments from medieval Islamic world and decorations from various countries. The museum is well organized. There was a richly decorated large round chamber at the top with decorated dome. It seemed like a cafe but was closed and there was nobody there. But the ambiance was amazing. The museum also has a cafe on ground floor which was open but we didn't check it out. The museum gift shop had a very good variety of stuff at a reasonable price.
