After years of passing it on the way to and from university, we finally managed to visit Sharjah’s very own Classic Cars Museum.
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.
Ford, Dodge, Chevrolet, Fiat, Studebaker, Cadillac, Rolls Royce, Bentley, Plymouth, MG, Mercedes… you name… they have it…
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’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).
