Our family really enjoyed visiting the Heritage Park one afternoon while on a Dallas weekend vacation. It isn't easy to find, so use your GPS or check your map carefully, but don't give up. The buildings are interesting and the people who work to interpret the different buildings are really interesting and have lots of facts to tell you. We... More

I brought my daughter and her fiancé here on a recent trip to the Dallas area. This was my fourth visit to this terrific park over the last ten years and it has always been a wonderful and different experience. I have learned so much from every visit about what life was like in the many different time periods represented... More

I went as a joke at first with my friends to see the Dallas Heritage Village. We all in college, and one of my friends who was from Dallas had never been there before. We all loved it. It was so much fun to walk through all the different buildings and see a little bit of history. As a history... More

I love old houses and living museums and the Heritage Village does a great job bringing the past to us.

I followed Tripadvisor advice to get there, I have no idea why this sightseeing ranked out of ten, to me, it was excellent. The day arrived, it was Saturday and having heritage parade and dancing party that people dressed costume like movie workshop, I was very exciting. Apart from hotels heritage, tools, barns, classroom, ranch, bars, post office, clinic, station,... More

Pack a picnic lunch and set the GPS for 1515 South Harwood, Dallas, TX 75215. (Unless you're familiar with the territory, a GPS will help prevent missing the turns in this neighborhood just south of the central business district and Interstate 30.) What's in the park? An impressive collection of original buildings constructed in the mid to late 19th century.... More

This is a good opportunity to see the real structures of Wild-Wild West for the people who are wondering how it was. We liked a lot to see the architecture of the local buildings coming from a couple of centuries ago. Full of details, you may easily spend a half day or so if you are really into it. I... More

When looking for places to visit in Dallas we came across the Heritage Village and decided to pay a visit. We stayed locally in Dallas and walked here, it took about 20 minutes in a near enough straight line, so very easy to get to if you want to walk, drive or take a cab. On site there seemed to...
