This place was a little hard to find and even more difficult to get to. It is at the end of a long residential street with cars parked on both sides. There is only room for one car to go down the middle. It is...More

Due to the concern of misusing the photos of houses here, no photos are allowed inside the house. Knowledgeable volunteers gave interesting information about each house. The heritage park itself was not as good as the one in Calgary, but you can tell their efforts...More

Just putting this out there because I had not seen any comments about this, but what a weird place in L.A for the location of this museum. We thought we had taken a wrong turn. The museum is at the end of a dead-end street...More

This a great way to learn about some Los Angeles' rich history and beautiful architecture. If you want to travel back in time, then visit Heritage Square and take their walking tour to do it. These homes are amazing from the outside and even better...More

The heritage square museum is a great living history of LA. The buildings that they have and have restored are great to see and the guided docent tours are extrodinarily informative. A must for anyone that likes architecture or histroy.

These are beautiful buildings, and on/from the outside, they're historically accurate. However, take a tour and unfortunately you'll only see the first level of a few of the buildings, just to be told that much of what's in there is not historically relevant to the...More

We went on a Sunday afternoon and it was very enjoyable. We have been to a lot of historic homes before so I was a bit bummed that you couldn't go beyond the first floor and some of them were barely restored on the inside....More
