Sharjah Museum of Islamic Civilization, nestled along a waterfront in an impressive souq, allows one to dive deep into the roots of Arab and Islamic culture. With the exhibits spanning over two floors, visitors learn about the rituals, artefacts, textiles and more.
The galleries on the ground floor exhibit various angles of Islamic faith, from their scientific accomplishments in astronomy and mathematics to their rituals and significance of the hajj. The upper floor galleries feature the timeline of 1400 years of art and artefacts of Islamic culture. The exhibits at the upper floor include woodworks, ceramics, clay, glass, pottery, jewellery, textiles and handicrafts with silver, gold and, brass inlay work. A coin collection of silver dinars and dirhams from Abbasid and Omayyad eras as well as zodiac mosaic below the central dome are among the key highlights of the museum.
