Sharjah Heritage District

Sharjah's Heritage District is set in the old city, and much effort has been put into showcasing the city's culture and history. Situated near the Corniche, the area is full of museums and restored houses that will fascinate visitors. Highlights of the Heritage District include the Al Hisn Fort, Sharjah Museum of Islamic Civilisation, Sharjah Calligraphy Museum, and the Souq al-Arash (thought to be the oldest souq in the country). The Al Naboodah and Al Midfaa family homes offer a glimpse into traditional Arabian life. Many museums have special opening times set aside for women only.
