تم بناء حصن الشارقة عام 1823 بأمر من الشيخ سلطان بن صقر الاول وكان الحصن مقراً للحكم ومقراً للدفاع عن مدينة الشارقة حتى ستينيات القرن الماضي حيث أصبح مقراً لشرطة الشارقة حتى تم هدمه في نهاية الستينات، ثم أعيد بناؤه عام 1997 ليشهد على حضارة مدينة الشارقة وفي عام 2015 اعيد افتتاحه مرة أخرى ليروي لنا سيرة مدينة الشارقة.
