Sharjah Maritime Museum
Mission of the Museum
The mission of the Sharjah Maritime Museum is to preserve and interpret the stories and material evidence of the Emirate’s rich maritime heritage.
About the Museum
The sea has played a key role in Sharjah’s development and was the primary reason for the first settlers choosing this site over 6,000 years ago.
In the museum you can explore traditional wooden seafaring dhows used for fishing, trading and pearling, each designed according to their use. See genuine Arabian pearls, discover how they were collected, measured and weighed. Admire the powerful wooden pulley blocks used to raise and lower sails and discover the local traditions for catching fish.
