Destination Details

Sharjah, United Arab Emirates

The Sharjah Museum of Islamic Civilization was renovated and re-opened in 2008 as a significant tourist landmark in the region, and the first of its kind in the UAE. Situated right at the historical heart of Sharjah on the Majarrah Waterfront, this fascinating Museum started its life as a traditional Middle Eastern souq or indoor market.

The museum’s predecessor was called the Islamic Museum, and was situated in one of the heritage houses in the Heritage Area. It was established in 1996, and continued to receive visitors until 2007, before transferring to its new location as the Sharjah Museum of Islamic Civilization.

The building now transformed into a state-of-the art cultural venue, the new Sharjah Museum of Islamic Cvilization, houses more than five thousand exquisite Islamic artefacts from all over the Islamic World, arranged according to themes over seven spacious galleries and display areas.
