Have You Heard of The Rain Room in Sharjah?

The Sharjah Art Foundation introduces the Rain Room, where it enables visitors to experience rain drops without getting wet, through the year in the UAE.

The Rain Room is a unique modern art installation, offering an inspirational and magical experience for visitors. Created by the London and Berlin-based Random International, the Rain Room is now permanently located in Sharjah. The installation has been displayed at the world’s most famous museums, including MoMA in New York and Barbican in London.

The experience is centred around audience interaction, enveloping a person in water without wetting them. With 2,500 liters of self-cleaning, recycled water, the Rain Room uses trigger sensors to pause the falling water wherever it senses motion. The contemporary art installation is supported by the Sharjah Art Foundation and is associated with the Sharjah Art Museum.

Many residents and tourists consider the Rain Room one of the best attractions in the city, as it offers an unparalleled experience of calm with the falling of water. A trip here can easily be clubbed with a visit to the Sharjah Museum of Islamic Civilization, the Sharjah corniche and a dining experience at one of the many restaurants nearby.
