Plan Your Visit Groups

Plan Your Group Visit

  • You will determine the timing and order of your visit, free to spend time in the areas you most want to emphasize.

Time span

  • Most groups find that 2 hours is a good amount of time for a visit. Add additional time if you’d like to bring and enjoy lunch onsite.
  • We are open Wednesday through Saturday, 10 am to 4 pm and Sunday, 1 to 4 pm.

Staying for lunch

  • Store lunches in containers/coolers with ice packs to assure that food is kept at a safe temperature as they will be kept outside.
  • You can either keep them in vehicles until lunchtime or place your containers in the shade under the breezeway. There is no inside storage available.
  • Additional information for School/Youth Groups:
    • Make sure to bring wagons or carts in which to transport your lunches from the east parking lot.

Visiting our structures

  • You are welcome to walk through any of the buildings you find unlocked.
  • Some of our houses are only open if there is a volunteer on duty to monitor them. Signage will indicate availability and directions.
  • Our gift shop is staffed by volunteers so hours may vary.
  • Additional information for School/Youth Groups:
    • The House of Seven Gables and Walsingham House are not available for field trip groups.
    • Keep the number of students you allow into the buildings at once at a manageable number.

Rules & Information

  • Our park is free and open to the public. Donations to the Pinellas County Historical Society, a friends group that exists to support Heritage Village, are always welcome. There are two ways to donate at our Welcome Center/Gift Shop: make checks out to Pinellas County Historical Society, or place cash in the donation box.
  • Always remind participants to walk, watch your step as you navigate the park, and stay out of the brush.
  • Be aware that you are in a park setting that may include wildlife. Please watch from a distance and do not approach or feed.
  • Bathrooms are located off the breezeway and near the HC Smith Store.

  • Additional information for School/Youth Groups:
    • Review and share rules and details of your visit plan with your students and chaperones well in advance of your visit.
    • Stress to chaperones that they are to monitor and address the behavior of students to assure that other visitors, volunteers, staff, and our facilities are treated with respect.
