I have drove by this so many times and never knew it was there. It is attached to the botanical gardens. Both are free. The place is such a wonderful show of old Florida life. There is lots to see and each house or building each has it's own history attached to it.

Tucked away at the side of the Florida Botanical Gardens is the Pinellas Co. Heritage Village. While still undergoing some renovations, the bulk of the buildings are open, and available to visitors, and the accompanying photos/historical notes bring to life the history of three of Pinellas County's, and Florida's pioneering families. The docent tours, and historical re-enactors make it outstanding... More

Another free place to visit, if you like history. They've taken original buildings, such as the train station and various homes, and placed them in a "village". Each building is filled with antiques that too many people never get to see.

This museum truly offers history you can see. My husband and I stumbled upon the Village after visiting the Florida Botanical Gardens a couple years ago, and we had to go back again this year. Each house is local to the area, usually with a family history. The tour of the Seven Gables (thank you Susan C!!) was great, though... More

Heritage Village is very close to our house so I have made good use of the historical experience you can find here. All of my 4 grandsons have spent many hours wandering the village. Enjoying the houses, and other buildings. The museum and the blacksmiths not to mention the gas station with general store, where they played checkers with bottle... More

I grew up in Florida. Some of the houses reminded me of when I went to my grand parents home for thanksgiving and their home was old then. The museum guides are very knowledgeable. You feel like you're momentarily going back in time.

Whether you are a visitor or resident in Pinellas County, Fl. you must take the time to stroll through the village and botanical gardens which is attached. Great place to learn about Florida history and authentic homes, stables, gas station, store, etc... Found guides to be very informative and helpful. Amazing that there is no fee, but considered a county... More

This is a great place for all ages. There are all kinds of buildings, some with docents to explain things. Kids will enjoy the train depot and baggage car. Very peaceful atmosphere. Good small museum and a variety of items in the gift shop.

My boys, 7 & 9 yrs old, and I visited and loved it! The buildings were air conditioned, which was a huge plus in July. The area was shaded and was a very nice stroll through history. Each open home had a plaque outside describing the history of the house and it's inhabitants. Once inside, it was staged as if... More
