Sharjah Classic Cars Museum

After years of passing it on the way to and from university, we finally managed to visit Sharjah’s very own Classic Cars Museum.

Sharjah Classic Cars Museum celebrating UAE’s 44th National Day :)

With over a hundred cars starting from the 1915 Dodge Model 30, the museum is a great place to walk through the evolution of automobiles.

Right hand drives :)

Walking through the museum I realized that they just don’t make them so pretty any more. They also don’t make them as long anymore, which is a relief! How on earth did anyone ever park an Eldorado?

What an engine… like staring down the barrel of a gun!

And of course.. how can I leave without a picture of the Stingray <3

What’s really interesting is that a lot of these cars have been donated for display by car owners, so they still have their actual number plates, not classic car plates, and since there are lots of classic car events and festivals, most cars even have Salik (toll gate stickers). How very modern ^^

The museum only charges AED5 per head for adults and is open from 8am to 8pm, except Fridays when it’s open from 4-8pm (as of Dec 2015).
