Sharjah Museums Authority (SMA) has launched its culture app, which will display the history, art, science and artifacts from Sharjah’s 16 museums, WAM reported.
Launched as part of UAE Innovation Month, the app introduces smartphone and tablet owners to the offerings at Sharjah Museums in a user-friendly and functional way.
Through the app, users will be able to view objects and artefacts from the museum collections, in Sharjah, access information about visitor services such as opening hours, events, exhibitions and community programmes offered throughout the year, the report said.
Director-general of Sharjah Museum Department, Manal Ataya, said the launch of the app was a natural next step to bring the art and culture within Sharjah’s museums to new audiences.
"The app allows the public to stay in touch with everything the SMA is doing in a way that is user-friendly and convenient. All the information you need is available in this app, including news about the latest international exhibitions taking place across Sharjah, fascinating cultural workshops, or the opening times of your favourite museum."
"The launch of this new app shows that the SMA has embraced new technology in line with the principals of UAE Innovation Month. We look forward to connecting with even more people across the UAE and inviting them to participate in the wide range of important cultural events held by the SMA throughout the year,’ she added.
