We visited Heritage Village as part of our trip to Abu Dhabi. It’s a quaint place to learn the history and culture of the area.

Amazing experience. At one place you can feel sand, comfort, taste local food, see camels, visit museum etc. Awesome :)

This visit shows the history of the area and the skills of it's people. I spent between 1 and 2 hours there as it was part of a tour, but I could have done with more time.

As title says, was ok at best, felt like minimum effort had gone into it, museum part seemed a bit disorganised too. On the plus side it was a good location to get a scenic picture of downton Abu Dhabi

Heritage Village is a great place to bring visitors. In one location they can experience desert, oasis and coastal life in early Abu Dhabi. On weekends there are crafts people doing demonstrations. Worth the trip

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.
