Sharjah Science Museum

Sharjah Science Museum building

Sharjah Science Museum is yet another fun and educational place with many interactive learning stations where children can learn about different aspects of science such as electricity, how the body works, etc.

Sharjah Science Museum

Discover how organs such as the heart work, learn about optical illusions, test the laws of physics, identify spiders and insects or explore energy types, pretend to be a doctor looking at x-rays, see Pythagoras’ theorem in action.  No matter the age of your child, there will be something of relevance and interest.

Sharjah Science Museum Interactive Stations

We’ve been many times over the years and there is always something to see in a new light depending on what has been learnt recently at school. It’s a great location to supplement school learning or homeschooling.

There are staff with a scientific background on hand (you’ll see them in white lab coats) to explain more about the topics exhibited if you wish.

They also run shows in the theatre in the mornings in either Arabic or English according to the visitors they have in at that time.

The centre also has a free small play area for younger children (up to 4) whilst older ones are looking around.

In the foyer, you can find the Science Museum Shop where you can buy science-related learning sets and toys, stationery, books, etc. There is also a cafe where you can buy drinks, cake and other snacks.

Definitely one for school holidays or weekends with children. See more ideas for school holiday activities

Sharjah Science Museum Workshops and Camps

The centre runs both Arabic and English workshops (usually around an hour) at the weekend as well as bilingual science shows every day.

Holiday camps are bilingual, take place mornings and run through the main school breaks. You do need to register so follow Sharjah Museums on social media or check their website regularly for updates. The prices are very reasonable.

If you are a home-schooler, contact the museum directly to organise activities for your homeschooling group.
