It's a unique experience between human ingenuity from a thousand years ago. They were very smart. They had to build things from scratch without a precedence. Very impressive indeed.
A very informative museum on Islam. Well maintained. Spend at least 2-3 hours to appreciate this place. If I remember correctly then entry ticket was 10 dirhams which indeed is damn cheap for a place like this. This is must visit place in Sharjah.
