I stopped off as part of the Big Bus tour. Nothing to see here. I thought it was closed until I saw the security guards. Nice views of the city but displays were poor, just a few photos and pots. Maybe I came at the...More

The Heritage Village was very interesting. I advise taking time through the museum. Also the vendors had neat items for sale. Dip your toes in the beach. Our driver said it was the Indian Ocean. I’ll have to check google for confirmation.

As there is so much shopping and sightseeing on offer in Abu Dhabi the Heritage Village is disappointing - run down and very touristy.

Not a great deal to see here. It’s far too hot just to wander around somewhere that doesn’t offer a whole lot. Souvenirs available.

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.
