Sharjah Islamic museum offers visitors the chance to explore Islamic art, culture and history. The exhibitions follows the development of the religion, from its early roots in Arabia and its rapid spread into Europe and Asia, to it’s modern presence across the globe with more than a billion followers.

We created a comprehensive package of programmes, spread throughout the galleries, that covered a huge range of topics. A series of 18 touchscreen interactives offer visitors the chance to learn about all the main strands of Islamic art, from glass blowing to metal work. While another set of interactive explore some of the main inventions that have been developed in the Islamic world, including pioneering scientific discoveries in everything from optics to irrigation.
