Sharjah Museum Islamic Civilization
Sharjah is a small Emirate about ninety minutes from Abu Dhabi, on the other side of Dubai’s skyscrapers. The Museum offers an amazing tour through the history of Islamic art, architecture, and culture: medical instruments, navigational tools, calligrapher’s brushes, and manuscripts, textiles, and objets. A quick drive from the museum takes you to the famous Blue Souq, full of rug merchants and antiques dealers. Go to the souq prepared to haggle: if you're patient, you can save a pretty penny.
