Where are we going today?

History certainly does come to life at the Heritage Village in Largo! This 21 acre living history museum is the perfect way for kids to learn all about history...because they will be part of it!

Heritage Village is right in the heart of Pinellas County, and is actually home to some of the regions most historic buildings.

There are over 31 historic structures and features that the family can explore. Some even date back to the 19th century - can you imagine how different life is today!?

You can explore a school (kids, what do you think? Could you study there now?), a church, a railroad depot, a store, and even a sponge warehouse. Yep - a sponge warehouse!

As well as these historic structures, the Heritage Village also has exhibits where you can learn even more about the life and times of over a century ago.

Exhibits cover a range of themes, from the development of the Pinellas County area, so the colonization of Florida. There are even fascinating living history demonstrations and hands-on activities that you might come across as you stroll around the village. 

You might see pine needle and palm frond weaving, or you might find yourself visiting on laundry day! Have a look at the people working in the garden, making ropes, or horse shoes, or even cooking up a storm in the pioneer kitchen!

Don't forget to have a good look inside the buildings too, because they are filled with period furnishings that depict the culture, life and early industries which shaped the area that you know and love today!

Does history repeat itself? You have to explore history to find out! Lets go!

    It is connected to the florida botanical gardens, so you can walk right through to this park. What a collection of old houses that you can walk through and check out. They have 2 houses next to the museum that you have to do a tour with a guide to see. They have a sugar cane mill you can use to press the sugar cane to see what its like back in the day. Alot of classic car shows. I sat in a original bonnie and Clyde. Nice! Once in a while have a farmers market there, veterans gatherings, all different sorts of events. You can walk through a old train,...Read More

    Went for the first time today. What a treasure! We walked and explored just the Village today, but will definitely be going back to walk the Botanical Gardens. Next time we'll bring a picnic lunch. If you want a beautiful place to take your family and learn about Florida's earlier days, you need to carve out some time to visit here.

    Personally as a mom with a just a family going, I would have loved the place. It is really nice way to see history. With a group, I don't highly recommend it. Younger kids have a hard time getting into the history, and when you have a big group (we had two groups of 11-14 each) it takes skill to keep them all interested at once. I found that for the little kids, the junior docents spoke too fast and with too big words and thy were lost in the first sentence, so what I did instead is make it a game and we played pretend and pretended we were there...Read More

    Five stars not enough!!! A wonderful display of and pride in the history of the area. We are Ohio snowbirds who discovered the place just this year. We will go again next year to see the vegetable garden - and, I am sure everything else as well.

You can walk through a old train, and train station. If you don't care for the traditional museum type, you will enjoy this one!

This made it fun and they learned something. Also, we were told we would have three activities and we only were given one, which was disappointing.
