Among the participating museums are notable landmarks such as Sharjah Fort (Al Hisn), Sharjah Calligraphy Museum, Bait Al Naboodah, and Hisn Khorfakkan.

To enhance the visitor experience, SMA has introduced the innovative 'Museums Express' initiative. This mobile bus museum, operational in Dibba Al Hisn on February 28 and at the Heart of Sharjah on March 1 and March 3, offers a unique journey through various collections housed within Sharjah's museums.

In addition to complimentary entry, visitors have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the rich tapestry of the Emirate's heritage through a series of engaging workshops. For instance, the Al Hisn Towers workshop at Sharjah Fort (Al Hisn) provides insights into the history of the iconic 1823 AD edifice, shedding light on Sharjah's governance system, ancient defense tactics, and daily life in the emirate.

In a workshop at Bait Al Naboodah, visitors may showcase their artistic side by replicating the intricate historical architecture of the 1845 AD monument on gypsum castings with floral and geometric designs. In a similar vein, the Sharjah Calligraphy Museum hosts a class called "Letter Pendant," where students may design and create their own pendants out of beautiful Arabic script.

Furthermore, the Sharjah Heritage Museum hosts workshops that highlight Arab customs and traditions, providing visitors with a deeper understanding of the cultural heritage of the region.

In addition to these workshops, visitors can also explore captivating exhibitions such as 'Geometric and Floral Ornaments' at Bait Sheikh Saeed Bin Hamad Al Qasimi in Kalba and "The Art of Architectural Decoration in the Emirate of Sharjah" at Bait Al Naboodah, offering insights into the artistic and structural values of the region.

The "Honorable Ornament" exhibition will be on display at the Sharjah Calligraphy Museum from March 1, 2024, until August 18, 2024. Saturday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Friday, 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., are the museum's operating hours. Those interested in learning more about the event's schedule, times, and venues can do so by visiting the SMA website.
