Wanted to see it but very disappointed. Very little in formation in "museum" area. Staff not interested and not locals. The idea is great but presentation very poor. Left and know very little more about Abhu Dhabi heritage than when I went in!

We visited here as part of a tour. It is a rather touristy place but the little shops have some nice things to buy. Cashmere pashmina [made in India] for £5.

It is a bit amazing that this place is not looked after better. For some guided tours the visit might be compulsory. It only proves that the place has no real history. Should not be a priority for travellers with little time.

Visiting the heritage village gives you the opportunity to explore UAE's all times handicrafts and history. I recommend it to tourists.

Argh...seems so fake, so designed to provide tourists with the days gone by. We were there on National Day, so at least had some interesting pop-up real food stands, but basically, while it does provide an overview of ethnic life here, seemed so artificial.

I would do a trip to Qasr Al Hosn... its in the heart of town and has a lot to offer. You could always do the Heritage Village in the evening. The village is interesting, but the Qasr has more to offer.
