The Heritage Village in Abu Dhabi is a small yet intriguing attraction on a beach near the Marina Mall. Inside the small park, you’ll find examples of Bedouin homes and other exhibits that describe what daily life used to be like in the Emirates.

4 tips for visiting the Heritage Village

Go With a GuideThe Heritage Village is a relatively small and informal place to visit, and many guides include it as a stop on an all-day or half-day tour of Abu Dhabi that might also include a trip to the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Yas Island (where you’ll find Ferrari World), or the Etihad Towers.

Visit the CraftsmenOn most days there will be a few people demonstrating traditional handicrafts inside some of the huts and tents. Make sure to visit them, since they’re always pleased to explain what they’re working on.
Snap a Photo of the SkylineThe Heritage Village is one of the best places to take pictures of the ever-changing skyline of Abu Dhabi. Located on a peninsula opposite the main city, you can get a great view of the city across.
Spend Some Time in the MuseumIn addition to the huts and tents where the craftsmen and women work, there’s a small museum that tells you a bit more about the history and lifestyle of the Bedouin and other Arab tribes that formed the United Arab Emirates. Spend some time learning about the Sheikhs and the founding of the nation before heading off to explore the rest of the attraction.
