A chance to see the colourful, rich and diverse world under the sea may not be something you would expect on a visit to the UAE.
But the Sharjah Aquarium offers visitors just that.
Home to a variety of marine life native to the seas around the city, the aquarium is great for a day out for the family.
Showcasing more than 250 species of marine life, there is so much to see – from the smallest clown fish and delicate seahorses to moray eels, rays and reef sharks.
Visitors can discover everything from the larger ocean creatures to the smaller sea life found in the rock pools, coral reefs, lagoons and mangroves.
One special feature on offer here is a walk by the sea outside as well as a walk under the sea inside the aquarium.
The museum has various opening times, depending on the day.
While it is closed on Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays, it is open only for families on Wednesdays from 16:00 to 19:30.
Other visitors can go on Thursdays from 9:00 to 19:30, on Fridays from 15:00 to 20:00, and on Saturdays from 9:00 to 20:00.
Family – Theme Parks – Treat the family to a day at one of the Disney resorts or to a splashing day out at a Spanish waterpark.
