We enjoyed our visit to Dallas Heritage Village and wished we had more time. Everything was done to make the place very quaint and authentic. I was a little disappointed that there were so few costumed people in character: we saw and talked to only two. Of course, these people are all volunteers and there have been budget cuts. We... More

The Dallas Heritage Village was a treat to visit, it was like going back in time and seeing how people used to live without many of the creature comforts we have today. The best part was seeing downtown Dallas in the background, the contrast is great, old versus new. They also have audio information on each building that you can... More

The Heritage Village is the real thing. It is real old homes and buildings from Dallas' past and it has all the authentic stuff there that people lived their lives with. The furniture, the tools, the kitchens, the architecture and the barns to house their horses and animals. They actually have live mules there to get a really authentic feeling... More

Fun way to get some history in. We took our kids and some others and had a blast. We learned a lot about the turn of the century Dallas area.

We needed an activity to do on our trip to Dallas, and this was perfect. We lucked out with some nice weather and enjoyed strolling around the park. The displays were very interesting and informative. If you took the time to read the placards at the front of the buildings, you could learn a lot about Dallas and the area... More

Visited Old City Park last Saturday with my two daughters, ages 8 & 11. We really enjoyed going through all of the historic buildings. We were lucky that there were so many buildings open that afternoon including guides/docents to tell you about the history. I had read an earlier review stating that the park was in poor condition and run... More

I'd been wanting to get here for years and finally managed a pretty spring day. The park is in a lovely setting withe the restored buildings in a comfortable walking loop. The docents were interesting and fielded questions enthusiastically. Some upkeep issues but nothing that was offensive. Great place, great atmosphere.

We loved our visit to Dallas Heritage Village. Even during spring break, we found free parking with ease and it wasn't very crowded. I loved watching children play in the general store. The only thing I would like to change was to have a guided tour available.

After living in Dallas for quite a while I was surprised to discover this museum/attraction. And asking around, few people seems to know there is this recreation of and old Texan town next to the city center of Dallas. I think the managers need to make a better effort of advertising this for locals and tourists. The village is located... More
