There are many artefacts, jewellery, pottery, cutlery as well as other objects which are on display here but more significantly there are several workshops which teach you traditional techniques of weaving, spinning, pottery etc. the display also throws light on various characteristic features of this ancient culture such as the system of irrigation called falaj, campfires and goat rearing as well as other activities. Thus the heritage village has an interactive outlook on culture and if you are bored of museums it will be the perfect way to enjoy and learn at the same time.

  • Although a bit kitschy, the village hosts a couple of small but genuine museums with interesting historic artefacts and a number of handcraft artisans showing their work and selling their handmade items. So overall definitely worth a stop, should not take more than half an hour to an hour. Entrance free of charge, there is also free parking in front.

  • A good way to learn about their way of living, but you can say it's kind of artificial. The guides are very nice. Loved the museum!

  • Single spot to know more about Emirates. History and culture in brief. And it has a great view of Abu Dhabi from the beach.

  • A nice place to see if you have a free morning. Although not much there, it feels a little artificial. It is something different to the modern city just across the water.

  • Great place to visit if you happen to come close(short walk from corniche). Museum is great and the restaurant is the best.
