I have heard so much about this place over the years and finally decided to visit on a quiet Wednesday afternoon with my son. We both really enjoyed this outing. We participated in the afternoon tour (lasted about two hours) and I’m so glad that we did. Our tour guide was wonderful and took us through the historic home and... More

A lovely house from the time period surrounded by a farmstead. Kids can feed the chickens, "milk" a cow, sit in an old time schoolhouse, and basically get a feel of what life was like back when.

I went based on the reviews and i just didn't see the big deal. I guess you can't argue for the admission price but there was not a lot to the place. Good points are that it was clean.

Visit a living working farm museum. See what it's like to raise vegetables in your garden and prepare them for the table. Everyone had a chore to do on the working farm located in the heart of Plano.

The Heritage Farmstead Museum is a great place to see how it was done back in the day! My son likes seeing the farm animals and digging in the dirt. We took my mom who is 80 and she reminisced about her days growing up on a farm. The folks who work and volunteer there are very knowledgeable and friendly.... More

My son and I visited the museum today and were pleasantly surprised by the experience. The tour we took only cost $5 per person and started out with a brief(15 min.) video perspective. Then we toured the main homestead which was beautifully decorated with period pieces. The docent was very informative and readily answered any and all questions asked. After... More

We used to take our kids here a couple of times a year. My daughter had a birthday party here in 3rd grade and it was wonderful! The girls dressed up like pioneer girls and we had a party coordinator that "taught" them a lesson in the school house. They also played party games out on the lawn that were... More

This small park gives the young kids an opportunity to experience what life might have been like in Plano back in its early days. It is broken up into a number of interactive areas so you can skip one if they are not at all interested. It is a nice way to spend an hour and it gives the little... More

The is the best place for Easter Egg Hunt!! Like all places, the actual hunt lasts 1-2 minutes, with the kids gathering the eggs faster than you can think. However, before and after the egg hunt, you can show the kids an actual farm with animals and fun activities.I will keep an eye out for other holiday events here!!

I took my granddaughter, who is four, during Spring Break this March. She loved it here, they had extra things to do because of the break. But any young child wil love this little piece of history. Once inside it is easy to forget you are in the middle of Plano. They have beautifully cared for animals. My granddaughter loved... More
