The Heritage Farmstead Museum interprets farm life and agricultural history in the 1890s to see what life was like for the North Texas farmer.
The Heritage Farmstead Museum, located in the heart of Plano, is the premier North Texas museum interpreting farm life and agricultural history. Step back in time to the 1890s to see what life was like for the North Texas farmer. We offer hundreds of school programs and field trips and put on special events during the year. The museum is opened to the public Thursdays - Saturday, 10 am to 2 pm.
Volunteers are needed weekday mornings from 9:30 am to 12:00 noon during the school year and are asked to commit to at least two mornings per month. Volunteers are expected to dress in appropriate period clothing which is available along with access to costume experts. Trained volunteers lead small groups of 10-15 children and their teachers on a pre-planned tour lasting about 90 minutes. No prior experience is needed, and training is provided.
Volunteers are needed during public hours (Thursday-Saturday 10am-2pm) for Farmstead Guides, Visitor Center Host, Wilson House tours, and Young House tours.
