Heritage Village Abu Dhabi

Run by the Emirates Heritage Club, this reconstruction of a traditional oasis village provides an interesting glimpse into the Emirates past. Traditional aspects of the desert way of life, including a campfire with coffee pots, a goats’ hair tent, and a falaj irrigation system, are attractively displayed in the open museum. There are workshops where craftsmen demonstrate traditional skills, such as metal work and pottery, while women sit weaving and spinning. The craftsmen are happy to share their skills, and may occasionally give you the chance to try them out. The little spice shop is a treat – you can get a range of dried herbs, handmade soap and plenty of chatter. Opening Times: Saturday to Thursday from 9am to 5pm, and Friday from 3.30pm to 9pm
