  • An interesting place to visit if you are in Abu Dhabi! There is no fee for the entrance and you can get here by taxi, hop-on hop-off bus or even by foot - it’s next to Marina Mall. What you can find here? The history of UAE and is really worthy because you can realize how the evolution took place in the last 60 years. You can see how the lived - in what kind of establishments; how they worked and what other specific things are important for these people.
  • It was nice place in Abu Dhabi. Sea side view is excellent. All other local activities are good to see. But unfortunately when we visited no one craft person was doing it to demonstrate. Everything felt artificial. It looked like it was not original. As there are very few places to visit in Abu Dhabi, it's a good try as usual.
