Sharjah Centre for Astronomy and Space Sciences

Sharjah Centre for Astronomy and Space Sciences, often referred to as Sharjah Planetarium, houses several fascinating exhibits such as lunar vehicles, the solar system and other things related to the universe and space science.

It has a lot of interactive learning areas and is suitable for all ages. The shows are really interesting and enjoyable too.

SCAAS sits in the middle of Cosmic Park. The golden dome is the sun and the planets sit around it each in their own orbit. The observatory is in the corner of the park and is open to visitors at certain times such as during eclipses or other special events. Details are on their website.
