This is a little Founder farm in the heart of Plano. Eventually, it may be the only one left. It's a great place for young kids to learn about early Plano life on the farm, and the house is great for adult history buffs. Just make sure you get the stories of the original owner! She must have been what... More

Wish my boys and I could have actually taken a guided tour. We walked ourselves through. I guess they weren't ready for visitors. But the animals are huge here. Nice little farm. The people were pleasant. They greeted us as we walked throughout.

This is an awesome learning experience for both kids and adults. Loved it. Went back when the dinasaur exhibit was going on and it was truly magical with the life size presentations that moved and made noises! Walking trail to find the next surprise and history displayed. Inside was just as cool with all the live snakes, marsupials, birds etc.... More

Love the Farmstead. There isn't much old Plano left and you can learn and experience what life was like in the 1800s. Animals and all.

This is a great place to learn how farm life was in the 1800's. Take a tour with a docent to really appreciate all of the authentic detail in the restored house. There are a variety of animals, a barn and more to see as you walk the grounds. If you visit during a special event, you might see a... More

They liked it, was a little of everything and some time outside exploring... Can't complain. The staff was nice, the outside was clean and well marked

This is a small but fascinating museum in the heart of Plano, TX. My husband and I are amateur historians, and we loved the information we learned at the Heritage Farmstead Museum. The museum store is filled with some great finds.

The museum is in the heart of Plano, TX. They have a number farm buildings, equipment, and animals. The grounds remind of the farm my grandparents had back in the 40's. It was a trip down memory-lane. I think it gives kids a good representation of farming in days gone by. The staff is very helpful and happy to interact... More

We visited here recently and it was a pleasant experience. The tour of the house and grounds was enjoyable and educational. The joy has been carefully and lovingly restored to its former elegance. There are also out buildings to tour and the children's favorites, farm animals including chickens, turkeys, sheep, goats, pigs and donkeys.

Authentic farmhouse in the middle of Plano...so much to see, all as it was in the 19th century. Great for all ages, and there are many interesting events held on the grounds.
