Sharjah Museum of Islamic Civilisation information
Pretty much everything you always wanted to know about Islam is addressed in this well-curated museum in a converted souq right on the waterfront. The ground-floor galleries zero in on different aspects of the Islamic faith, such as the Five Pillars of Islam, including the ritual and importance of hajj. Other rooms trace Arab scientific accomplishments, especially in mathematics and astronomy, while the upper floor navigates through 1400 years of Islamic art and artefacts with manuscripts, ceramics, armour, woodwork, textiles and jewellery. Wrap up with tea beneath the central dome with its striking deep-blue zodiac mosaic.
