  • I didn't really get this place. It didn't feel remotely like an authentic village, more like a badly done Disney themed area 
  • Walked free. Stop Big Bus No. 15. Interesting reconstruction of the homes in the desert. Varied shops and very decent prices. Magnificent views of the towers of Abu Dhabi. Do without hesitation

  • Good place to learn about the local Emirati culture and heritage. Worth a visit if you're a tourist or a new resident.
  • Check the Timings & Open or Closed, before going there. Parking is a bit problem, so be ready for it. Must Visit in Raining Season.
  • very informative... every one could understand about past eras of Arabs and their effors
  • Small but nice, much nicer than its equivalent in Dubai. Interesting small museum inside. Gives you a good idea of how Abu Dhabi was just 50 years ago...
  • Great place to learn about uae's culture
