This was my first time to visit Pioneer Farms after living in Austin all these years. The play was put on by volunteers. They did a great job. The play was 1 1/2 hours long and with a full moon - it was a great time for everyone of all ages to attend. I also enjoyed going through the general... More

Great park if you are interested in how Americans lived in the 1800's. You start at the General Store in the village called Sprinkle Corner. Next door to the store is a building housing a collection of buggies and wagons. The building to the right of the walk in entrance houses another display. Most of the buildings are open during...

This is a lovely part of the past that is being preserved in Austin. There are several homes and other buildings placed on a large parcel of land that cannot every be built on due to its historic nature. Bring a picnic, visit the blacksmith and wander in the woods. It's a great place to bring children.

We took our 6 year old grandsons for the haunted house. There are 4 or5 haunted buildings to go through. Was so much fun and exciting. They are very daring and though we jumped out of our skins and screamed a lot they loved it! If you go wear walking shoes and carry water their is a haunted trail you... More

Pioneer Farms is a wonderful destination in Austin for families and people of all ages! You can step back in time and really experience life in the 1850's ! The buildings are historically preserved, the farm animals are fascinating, and the volunteer re-enactors are very well prepared! Try to go right when they open in the morning, especially during the... More

I love this place and the workers were super nice and educational. Some things were hands on experience. Would like to take my grandchildren there around Thanksgiving time.

we went with our homeschool group during the school year. All the buildings were open, but there weren't as many activities as there are in the summer. It is classic Texas pioneer but very accessible for young children.

Great experience for the kids. Try to visit during cooler months of the year as it is outdoors and with limited shade. It is a unique experience and very worth the visit.

We went here with our toddler and two grandparents just to participate in kids day. We expected a living museum (and yes, it is difficult to round up volunteers), but unfortunately none of the advertised demonstrations were operating. In truth, it is a poorly organized museum. A lot of old buildings to be sure, a handful of run-down teepees, rusty... More
