  • Very entertaining .less crowded.kids will have lots of fun with the various kinds of dishes and the decorated aquarium.  more »
  • The aquarium was visited independently as it was a couple of kilometers from our hotel. I loved it. My husband literally dragged me from one aquarium to another to go out :) Frozen, went there in shorts and T-shirts, and there are very powerful air conditioners. Although the aquarium is not very large, but I liked it. Especially the part with sharks and stingrays. By the way, not everyone knows that there is a second building, with models of boats and ships.

  • A good destination in Sharjah for a family day out. What I love about the aquarium is that it has a wide range of sea life within a decent size building, and you can get up close and personal with the sharks! Amazing for the kids and none of the hustle and bustle of bigger aquariums. A hidden gem in Sharjah and a must visit. Nice cafe inside, a fish restaurant tucked away behind the aquarium and stunning views across Al Khan Lagoon as well. Last time there, your ticket also gives you access to the Maritime Museum opposite. Well done Sharjah!
  • Educational place you get to see alot of species. Nicely organized with every tiny information regarding the species. You can spend good quality time here with your family. It also has a coffee shop with an amazing view of the sea.
