Heritage Village, Abu Dhabi Reviews

  • Go here for a serene evening. Surprisingly, the small beach is not crowded at all. The museum offers an interesting glimpse into the emirate's past and the small model farm is a pleasant surprise. Replicas of the small traditional houses of the Arabian peninsula takes you back in time when life in the region was different. It is easy to see how life was unsophisticated and uncomplicated. The enormous national flag flying in the background lends the whole place a great ambience.

  • Very nice place to visit. Run by the Emirates Heritage Club, this reconstruction of a traditional oasis village provides an interesting glimpse into the emirate’s past. Traditional aspects of the desert way of life, including a campfire with coffee pots, a goats’ hair tent, and a falaj irrigation system, are attractively displayed in the open museum. There are workshops where craftsmen demonstrate traditional skills, such as metal work and pottery, while women sit weaving and spinning. The craftsmen are happy to share their skills, and may occasionally give you the chance to try them out. The little spice shop is a treat – you can get a range of dried herbs, handmade soap and plenty of chatter.

  • An interesting mix of cultures here, parts of it offers an insight into the history of Abu Dhabi, a tranquil small beach (no swimming) with the fabulous view of downtown across the bay, a fascinating museum, several stalls selling assorted holiday type tat (IMHO). (Not sure why I’d choose here to buy my Dubai fridge magnet? ;-) ) All while overlooked by the iconic big flag. Definitely worth getting off the Bus if on Bus Tour. (Also has toilets here)

  • Cool place to visit. Wish there was more than one food option on site... Did not love the one that was there. Make sure you visit the shore line and dip your feet into the gulf. Crystal clear water.

  • From its name, I expected more of a cultural experience but it left a lot to be desired. The few shopping stalls had pretty much the same array of goods and the buffet restaurant wasn't great. Highlights was the museum and the tiny beachside.
