Visiting this heritage village gives a very brief view of the past and the lifestyle of the people there. The artisan buildings are well worth the price of admission and if you take the time to talk to these individuals, you will learn much about their crafts and see them at work. Be sure to take enough time to visit each various heritage displays and each of the artisans as this is what the heritage village is about -- not the tourist stalls that line the main walkway with "junk" items that are not representative of the people and their way of life. The village itself is small and very limited in its explanation as to the way of life of the people 50 years ago; other museums in the UAE have much more information, pictures, displays. The view across the water to the main area of Abu Dhabi is beautiful and clearly demonstrates how far the UAE has come since the first oil was exported from the Abu Dhabi area in 1969.
