The museum tour at the Mleiha Archaeological Centre will give visitors a first-hand glimpse into the golden past of the region. Located inside the visitors centre which is built around a massive tomb from the Bronze Age Umm An Nar culture, the museum hosts plenty of multimedia displays, exhibits, interactive displays, artifacts, and information points that bring history to life that goes a long way to explain Mleiha’ s historic importance.
The visitors will be able to see for themselves what it was like to live in the region thousands of years ago and to learn about the unique archaeological environment of Mleiha and the pre-historic sites in the Mleiha, Jabal Bu’hais, and Jabal Faya regions of Sharjah.
For kids and adults who want to engage further in archaeological learning, the destination offers specially designed educational packages like ‘The Fossil Hunt Expedition’ and ‘Sounds of the past’, which teaches the art of making fossil casts using actual fossils found in Mleiha and of making stone tools just as humans did thousands of years ago.
