Buhais Geology Park opens in Sharjah January 20, 2020

Our Buhais Geology Park Interpretive Centre has been officially opened by His Highness the Ruler of Sharjah today.

 

The Park lies approximately 30 miles south-east of the city of Sharjah in a region of exceptional prehistoric and geological significance and is the latest addition to a suite of learning centres operated by Sharjah’s Environmental Protected Areas Authority.

 

The new Interpretive Centre consists of five ingeniously shaped, interconnected pods that take their design cue from the region’s prehistoric fossils. The pods house a sequence of exhibition spaces exploring the area’s geological heritage, as well as an immersive theatre, a café with panoramic views of the dramatic Jebel Buhais range towering behind the Centre, a gift shop and other visitor facilities.
