Dallas Heritage Village – Blue Star Museum

This weekend we visited the Dallas Heritage Museum!

I grew up in Dallas and had never even heard of this museum but it was one of the museums that military families can visit for free thanks to the Blue Star Museums program, so we figured we’d check it out. It shows what life would have been like here in Dallas back in the late 1800’s. Pretty cool really!

I just love this little girls spirit!

We were able to go into many of the buildings and see how they would have lived and man does it make you grateful to be born during a time when A/C is widely available!

I’m pretty sure the kids favorite part was this old school building!

We went on probably the hottest day we’ve had so far this summer. And the humidity was out of control! We could have spent a bit longer here but I was a sweaty mess and ready to get out of the heat. But I’m glad we checked it out!
