very cool, one of the best attraction in dallas (not open in january) You can visit many buildings of the early 1900, and in every house there is a person which answers questions about the people who lived there and other curious facts about the house. very interesting, worth the visit and you can spend how much time you want.

My husband and I really enjoyed visiting Dallas Heritage Village. From the website and my past experience with similar places, I expected this to be small, cheesy, and kind of lame, but I was wrong. There are a lot more buildings than I expected. Plenty to form an actual little village, complete with landscaping and gazebo. Only a couple of... More

So I went to the Heritage Village on a very hot Texas afternoon after spending the morning at Dealey Plaza and, if I'm honest, I wasn't all that impressed. When I arrived at around 1pm, I was told that two of the most interesting buildings had tour guides... but that both of them were due to leave at 2pm. I... More

On the one hand, the village is quaint and informative in an old-time way. On the other hand it is in need of repairs, which given the age of the structures and the building materials is totally understandable. Clearly it takes a lot of work and money to keep repairs made. We went Sunday after Thanksgiving. Hardly anyone was there.... More

Any time is a good time to enjoy the historic buildings that are located in the first Dallas city park. But, during the holiday season, Dallas Heritage Village hosts Candlelight, a merry and festive celebration. Strolling performers and donkey-pulled carriage ride are just a couple of the activities that are part of this decades-old tradition. Food is also available.

A walk in the park with a cool twist. Enjoy great trees and old buildings. A great amount of green space, very close to the City center. Visit the NYLO rooftop or Full Circle Tavern in the same neighborhood.

Very enjoyable historical park in a quiet part of Dallas. Not too many costumed employees (we were told one of them hadn't shown for work that day, so his building was closed). Well maintained structures from the mid 1800s in a pleasant atmosphere. There is a cell phone audio tour you can use, and most of the buildings are open... More

This was an absolute treat! We were honored to be invited to Steampunk Invasion, an event hosted at Dallas Heritage Village. The site was lovely, accommodating and picturesque. The old buildings that had active stores, bars and staff made this event something to remember. Even if there is not an event going on, I would love to stop by again.... More

The Dallas Heritage Village is always a favorite place of mine. It is tucked back out of the downtown Dallas area in Old City Park, and is a great quiet place to go and step back into time for the afternoon. The Dallas Heritage Village hosts a number of historic buildings with period furniture, and they are houses and buildings... More
