Meadow Farm Museum
Children will love Meadow Farm. This living history site features animals to see and pet and special games and activities just for the small and curious. A restored 1860 farmhouse and its outbuildings are here to tour, giving visitors a comprehensive idea of what country life was like in the 1800s. Examples of special activities are needlework circles, a favorite social event for women of the era, and group games that children played during the period. Adults will enjoy the farmhouse too, as well as the 150 acres of park grounds that surround it. Admission is free.
Meadowfarm Museum offers kids the chance to visit with a variety of farm animals, including horses, pigs, sheep and turkeys. The adjacent Crump park has a nice playground, plenty of play space and a duck pond.
my children were practically raised at meadow farm! The park is beautiful and the staff are so willing to let visiting families participate in any available activities. The park always has something going on that is usually free or low cost. There is something for every family member there and it is a great place for making memories together.
I'm a volunteer at the farm now, but i started off as a guest. It's completely free, and offer tours of the 1860 farm house. Very kid friendly, with horses, pigs, chickens, cows, and a flock of sheep.On special event days, visitors will get a hands-on look at farm like during the civil war. Costumed volunteers give tours, help visitors wash laundry, weave on a loom, spin wool, cook in the kitchen, harvest crops, and work in the garden. There are period games for kids. Visitors can see a blacksmith at work, and how a sheep is sheared. Down the road there is Crump Park, which offer a playground, and picnic shelters. I definitely recommend it to anyone in Richmond.
