Those who do not know English in the museum will not be so interesting, because there is no information in Russian.

• BUHAIRA CORNICHE- In order to experience all the splendor and uniqueness of the place, I recommend visiting the embankment in the morning and in the evening. The contrast will amaze you. In the morning and in the afternoon, this is a deserted place under the scorching sun, in the evening it is a meeting place and rests for the townspeople. The evening illumination enchants with its mystery, and the crowds of vacationers bring a touch of tranquillity. Look around and find a bakery where you can buy baked cheese and bread in front of you or a cafeteria where you can taste Arabic coffee with cardamom or freshly squeezed juice. Find an empty bench or place under a palm tree and catch a wave of local colourful relaxation. You can have a nice walk here.

The adorable girls give a short but informative presentation on the history of religion, the mosque, traditional clothes, and drinks in English. You have time to look at the Books, clothes, and utensils for making coffee, feel the space around you, and retire, sitting on the carpets and contemplating the world around you. At the exit, you are offered a compliment - coffee with cardamom, dates, water. The whole excursion for the tourist is thought out and comfortable.

• SHARJAH CLASSIC CAR MUSEUM- They are not allowed to touch the cars. There are gorgeous exhibits. Undoubtedly - an excellent collection of retro cars. But small children are not interested, they want to twist, climb and touch. 1 hour for a visit is enough. Only 10 dirhams, and a lot of cars in excellent condition. If you travel by car and love classic cars, be sure to check it out.Very interesting if you are a big car connoisseur. the whole family will like it, the exhibits are located both in the building and on the territory of the museum. Taxis can be called back by the museum staff. These are mainly American cars. Many cars that have not been restored are located around the museum building. Apparently waiting in the wings (on the territory of the club of motorists). They can also be considered for a long time.

• RAIN ROOM- The Rain Museum room is the size of our gym in schools but without windows. The entrance is 25 dirham, it is very difficult to buy tickets on weekends and on Fridays, it is not yet possible to make a purchase on the Internet. The session itself lasts 15 minutes. You enter and you see how people walk in the rain (drops are fed from the ceiling.) Moreover, if you walk fast, you get wet, and if you walk very slowly, you get to the opposite wall dry. When you move slowly, a cloud of rain moves with you, and you are a dry center. This is a hall with water jets and light from the ceiling. You take a step and streams of water part in front of you. The main thing is not to run, jump or hurt your neighbor. It seems to be nothing special, but the photos there turn out to be very interesting.
