The attraction is worth visiting for its design alone, five interconnecting pods echoing fossils of the area. Once inside the Buhais Geological Park, visitors can expect model-based interactive displays that explore Sharjah’s mountains and sand dunes, and learn about the origins of the limestone mountain ranges of Jebel Buhais, and more. Visitors will also have the opportunity to examine local rocks and fossils. The facility features a ramp leading to a central hub and exhibition areas, and an outdoor trail that links the pods.

The trail incorporates viewing areas, walkways across geological sites, unusual rock formations and ancient burial grounds, and is designed to encourage visitors to explore the mountainous region. Other facilities available at the newly opened Geology Park are an immersive theatre, a cafe with panoramic views of Jebel Buhais and a gift shop. The new facility is the latest of a slew of learning centers operated by Sharjah’s Environmental Protected Areas Authority, which aims to provide educational experiences and manage protected areas in the region.
