Sharjah Museum of Islamic Civilization
Sharjah is a small emirate about 90 minutes from Abu Dhabi, on the far side of Dubai’s skyscrapers. This 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 Souk, full of rug merchants and antiques dealers. Go to the souk prepared to haggle: Prices are frequently flexible, if you’re patient.
