  • 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.
