This attraction could be so much more interesting but it is a bit run down and generally displays a lack of enthusiasm to show Abu Dhabi's culture and heritage, apart from a few photos and artefacts from times past.

I was here with two friends on Wednesday 28th March 2018 with two friends. Currently living in Abu Dhabi so I know a bit about the culture. The people I was with got a feel for the transformation of Abu Dhabi through this short visit.

Nice photo opportunity on the sand of the high rise buildings across the water.

It's free and make sure to take a look in the small buildings. Toilet facilities on site also.

We visited here as part of an all day tour and it was nice to see the heritage of Abu Dhabi and how it once was.
The change in the way of life has been drastic and it was nice to see the new parts and the old parts during the tour.
There was a small museum on site which was where most of the photos of how it used to be were, along with other bits and bobs of its history.
There were a few small stalls here selling clothing garments and other tourist type things.
Would recommend seeing this if anything for the skyline photo opportunity, as you are able to see a few impressive buildings on the other side.

Not so much to see. Couple of buildings with artifacts and souvenirs, but nothing special. Only building worth visiting is the museum.

This hertiage villlage gives you much of the history that lay here before the incomprehendable wealth here. Again we got in for free. We got to see model reconstructions of desert villages, fishing boats, craft makers and markets. Well worth a visit with tge skyscrapers of modern day facing you across the tropical blue water and white sandy beach.
