While visiting Abu Dhabi I would recommend visiting here. It is great to look at how the local people used to live before the oil. It is not the biggest of attractions but gives you great views of the city. Also would recommend to get souvenirs from here.

The heritage village is nice because there is no fee to get in and you take take your time or simply run through the place. It has a decent amount to do and see with kids to kill an hour or so, but don't plan for a whole ton of time here. It is worth the stop if you happen to be in the area with a little extra time on your hands. At sunset, there are beautiful views across the water to the Etihad Towers and the Emirates Palace. (DO NOT BUY SOUVENIRS HERE. They are incredibly overpriced.)

I found the Heritage village interesting especially the museum and artifacts, it was very hot in June to visit and it was difficult to get a taxi outside when we were ready to leave.

The Tourist bus is a good way to get your bearings in Abu Dhabi with a very informative commentary. The Heritage village was very crowded and scruffy and really did not explain how people in the area would have lived. The market area was trashy and overpriced. It was interesting to see the tents but they looked tired and there were no signs to five information.
Not worth going.

Very interesting presentation by an Emirati with bags of personality.
The full tour probably only takes 90 mins and is full of useful info whether you are on holiday or expat resident.
Probably not ideal during the summer heat and parking at the village is tough - a taxi is much easier.
Enjoy!
