On the third Saturday on each month in the summer there is an accoustic music night. Bring a picnic and enjoy the historic scenery while listening to some local music. My kids had a blast running through the misters and catching fire flies. What a great place to get out and enjoy our family together, great music and local history. I feel like I stepped back to 1890! For younger kids there is a Farmer Duck program each Thursday through the summer. Kids get do feed chickens and do some fun farm chores just like the old days. This place is great!
I was looking for something fun to take the inlaws and kids to keep them busy and this place was perfect! It's designed to be very kid friendly, and the people will get down at the kids level and explain everything in simple and fun ways. The kids had a blast exploring and playing and the in-laws enjoyed the educational aspect of the day.
This was worth every penny and I will definately bring the kids back.
Heritage farmstead is a great place to take young children to in Plano Texas. I would say preschool to about 1st or 2nd grade. Their website keeps you updated with the latest events they have going on and what to expect each Friday. They inform you of all the fees involved and what your child will elarn. very informative - telling you exactly what you need to know without picking up a phone. The price is about $5 and you can take along a picnic lunch to enjoy after the tour and activities
This is a great place for the whole family. When I was in school, we used to take field trips here, and later on, I volunteered. There are animals on the property, like horses, etc. They have a great big barn. Many times they have seasonal activities and normal arts and crafts activities for the whole family. Even though the museum is right in the middle of the city, with all the trees and camouflage, it makes you feel that you are in a wooded forest surrounded by nature.
The Heritage Farmstead is a museum in Plano, TX that consists of an authentically restored fourteen room 1895 Victorian farmshouse complete with all of its original outbuildings. It's in the heart of Plano, and it has most of the original stuff--they'll show you a 19th century kitchen and tell you how things were made, preserved, etc. There's a nice gift shop and it's cheap--only $3.50 for adults and $2.50 admission for children and seniors. A great family place to visit!
