Majlis Al Midfa Museum, home of the first U.A.E. publisher and the place where the first newspaper in the history of the U.A.E. – Oman newspaper was issued by the late Ibrahim Bin Mohammed Al Midfa, a prominent citizen who contributed immensely to the cultural development in the U.A.E. in general, and Sharjah in particular.
This place takes you back in time to a place that hundreds of years ago, gathered Emirati intellectuals of the city under one roof to read, exchange ideas, discuss affairs, enjoy the evenings reciting poetry and literature, and strengthen social relations among them.
Moreover, the museum has a library, and contains some items donated by the Al Midfa family, such as a carved pearl chest, old manuscripts and a silver dagger adorned with a gold leaf.
