Natural History & Botanical Museum

A centre of knowledge, the museum is a venue to provide visitors an opportunity to learn about the flora and fauna of the Arabian Desert.

The Sharjah Natural History & Botanical Museum has five halls detailing life on earth since the beginning of time. There are displays of fossils, meteorites, taxidermic animals and desert ecosystems, along with a botanical garden with nearly 100 native plant species.

Watch films about earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, and learn how Sharjah’s towering sand dunes were created. There is plenty to keep the kids entertained, including digitally erupting volcanoes and fossilised dinosaur bones.
