It is empty most of the time. The museums close very early, so you can only visit during a working day early in the morning, cutting off most of the others who work. It is hot in the summer, so being empty is understandable. But it's also empty in the winter. Hopefully this is temporary and will be improved as... More

Took friends here who were visiting Abu Dhabi for the first time. None of us had ever been before. It filled a morning but there were more stalls selling goods than anything else, but the prices were reasonable and they had some unusual things. We all bought something. Would definitely take other visitors there in the future.

This is poorly presented and I did not find it very interesting. Staff seemed disinterested and started closing stalls well ahead of the closing time.

You really need to be so bored or you already seen all the other great attractions in Abu Dhabi and this is the only place that is still you need to see, well don't. It needs so much more to be entertaining and interesting. Very disappointing .

Had a nice wander around and good views from the beach but we were a bit disappointed with the actual features/contents.
