The Rain Room, Sharjah Art Foundation


Are you tired of the heat already? Are you longing for some rain? Why not visit The Rain Room in Sharjah. And the best bit, you can enjoy the rain without even getting wet!

The Rain Room is a permanent art installation and is located in an underground chamber. Due to motion sensors, it doesn’t rain on you even then you’re surrounded by the ‘pouring rain’.

You do have to walk very slowly though so toddlers running around aren’t a good idea unless you don’t mind them getting soaked!

Don’t wear stilettos as they’re liable to get stuck in the metal grid that allows the water to flow through the ground.

Lastly, there’s a nice little coffee shop there too if you need to wait for a turn.

The Rain Room is open Sat – Thurs 9am-9pm, Friday 4pm-9pm

(Ramadan Sat-Thurs 10am-3pm, 9pm – 12am, Fri 9pm-12am)
