  • Good place to learn about the local Emirati culture and heritage. Worth a visit if you're a tourist or a new resident.
  • 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...
  • Small place. Not that much about history. More of a tourist trap. But lovely beach with view of the city!
  • If you are not expecting much, this place will be fine. It gives a brief overview of the past time and traditions. It also offers the only real camel downtown. The best might be the view of the skyline. Parking can be sometimes a bit difficult. I went through the whole place in 30-45 minutes. Free entrance and no parking fees.
  • Nice place to see some of uae's history and easy of living before they discovered petrol
