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

My husband and I love Heritage Village! It's a hidden gem in Pinellas County! It's free, and well maintained, and the volunteers and workers are awesome. We go here every so often to just walk around, along with Botanical Gardens next door. The last time we went it was closer to closing time (4pm), and the house we wanted to... More

I was very impressed with the Heritage Village. We saw about 1/2 of it because the day was very hot and humid (July). Be sure to take a hat/sunblock in summer. Lots of work has been done to make the village fun and believable. You can just feel you are back in the old days in Florida. Don't miss this.... More

Landon: I remember in 2nd grade. Me and my friends were looking at the cars following in the bus, pretending they were "robbers" trying to get us. Then we got out of the bus and I saw everything and just thought "Wow." It was a great field trip and I have remembered it from this day. 😊
