“Nice but not extravagance”
Reviewed 9 August 2014 via mobile

Placed near Marina Mall. You can explore some informations about Abu Dhabi: its tradition, nature life, and also the kingdom. But looks like it's not maintain well enough.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Visited as a part of a day tour. It did show some of the heritage of the area in the museum which was interesting but there was not much else to see. We wandered around and looked at all there was to see and filled in time till our tour left. Have seen much better.

“Emirati bedouin life style”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

This place is good stop to educate yourself about Emirati bedouin life style before the discovery of crude oil. The main stage at the back is a good place to take a panoramic photograph of Abu Dhabi's coast.

“Not worth it”
Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

This place is not worth a planned visit. As there is nothing much here. If you happen to be in the area then you can drop by and take a quick look around. Enrty is free anyway.

There is a very small museum which i find to be the only interesting thing here.
If you have young kids they might enjoy a camel or horse ride around a sandy area.
There is a traditional restaurant which is fairly priced, but i haven't tried recently so i cant judge the food.

There are a couple of antique and henna drawing stalls and some replicas of old huts and a fake archeological site (another replica).
Some ducks roam around and corner having a couple of goats and a buffalo!

Thats it.
It could have been much better.
