I was really blown away by this museum when i first went six months ago. The collection was stunning. Though my recent visit wasn't quite as impressive as some of the pieces changed, I'd still give it five stars given it's status as a true gem of Sharjah (plus free entry!).... Read more

Free of charge. Lockers downstairs. Air is conditioned. Exposition is quite impressive. We spent there 1,5 hours and wouldn't leave

This museum has a place of its own when it comes to art and ancient civilization. Showcasing the life of ancient people of Persia and their ways of livelihood. The paintings are really spectacular both in terms of meaning and acknowledgement.

This place is a gem. I guess tourism in UAE isn't focused in art, that's why entrance is free, but to be honest I would gladly pay an entry fee for a visit there! On the first floor you can find modern art mainly from Arab artists, while on the second paintings related to the Arabic world from Arab and non Arab artists.

Love this place. It always seems to be free of charge, but I would definitely pay if I had to! A really interesting permanent collection with a diverse range of art works, but also unusual exhibitions. None of your Picasso's, Modigliani's, etc., but great art nonetheless. The current - until Dec 2021 - Hans Christian Andersen exhibition is well worth a visit, with plenty of hands-on exhibits. Great if you are familiar with his work. Other exhibitions we have seen are also very high quality. Lovely and peaceful - a wonderful resource.

A great place to spend a couple of hours. We visited it during the Sharja art festival. It was a great experience especially for our kids who are interested in art as they love to draw using different mediums. The old souq is across the street. You can buy some traditional pots and items.

The upper floor had more traditional oil paintings on canvas and wood. ..collection in the museum is very good and I think it's worth visiting. Finally entry is kept free. ...
