The heritage village is a museum with displays on the Bedouin lifestyle and how they lived before oil was discovered. While entry if free, there is no real guide to say what things are/were for (a handout would be useful or an entry fee that includes a guide/tour) but the kids enjoyed running around and playing on the old swings. I don’t think they got much out of the replica village huts but they liked seeing the ox, camel and Arabian horse.
There are workshops demonstrating the ancient trades (pottery, boat building, glassblowing, sword making, spinning, shell art and spice trading). Unfortunatley no-one was making swords and knifes while we were there but they were fascinated by the glass blowing and the man making boats.
But the sun was shinning and the village is located on the breakwater near the corniche so it was a lovely way to spend the morning.
