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

We took our six year old granddaughter here for a pleasant outdoor activity. She loved the animals (mule, goats, sheep, chickens) and enjoyed learning what life was like before there was TV and video games. After strolling around the grounds for a bit, we took the tour which allowed us into the house and one-room school. Highly recommend the tour... More

The Heritage Farmstead Museum is worth checking out for anyone who lives in Plano. However, it isn't special enough for anyone from outside the city to visit. The museum gives you a general overview of farm and pioneer life at the turn of the century, a story you can get in any other city. It can be a nice place... More

Took my grandson, but there was little to see or do. Probably stayed less than a hour. Not sure why this place exists.

This place has been here since I visited in elementary school (over 20+ years ago), and I wish Heritage Farmstead could expand or add to it's attractions and history. There is typically a donkey and a few chickens. They try to make it as fun for children as possible. It's worth going to, but don't expect too much out of... More

An original farm house located on 15th Street, can be seen in just under 30 minutes. Close to bank. Starbucks and others fast food eateries nearby. Only good for one visit pay at door.

You can step back into the time when Plano was first established. This beautifully maintained home shows what it was like to live in the area during the turn of the century and demonstrates what a farmstead was. The kids will love the animals. They have chickens, guinnie fowl, goats, sheep and donkeys. If you can make it during the... More

This is a true treasure in the heart of Plano. A restored early 19th century farm gives visitors a lovely example of early days in Plano and Collin County. The docents are knowledgeable and offer an excellent representation of life on a farm in early north Texas. Children especially enjoy seeing the animals.
