You want to visit an authentic aquarium representing UAE and the spirit of Sharjah, visit this set piece of architectural marvel perched in a quite and serene neighborhood of The Emirate. A living experience and a fantastic view of this emerging city

I have seen aquariums in many countries , so compared to them it's not the best in the world. Go there if you have time. Spacious and good if you are looking for some marine life.

This definitely has a great value as its fee is reasonable (about $6.50 US for adults). It isn't the biggest aquarium, but it is nice and worth checking out.

Most of the residents must have never visit this place, and only when you get inside is when u realise it's worth it. Must visit.
