Visit Dallas Heritage Village with your troop and experience history. We believe in living history, and as a part of that mission, we offer a variety of hands-on programs for Girl Scouts of all ages. Choose from our badge workshops days or self-guided tour programs.
Join us at the village for a day of high finance on Main Street. Step up to the teller’s window in Citizen’s Bank to learn about Budgets & Business and Shopping & Saving by becoming a bank teller or pitching your new business idea. Stop by the Depot and figure out the best mode of transportation back and forth to your job as well as the how to spend your “vacation” time. Learn about women business owners, both big and small, when you stop by the Hotel and Shotgun House. Spend some time in the General Store working as a shopkeeper, or going shopping, and at the Alamo Saloon as Daisies, Brownies, Juniors, and Cadettes consider the cost of having fun while completing steps to earn their Girl Scout Financial Literacy 1 badge/leaf. Daisies earn their Money Counts badge, Brownies will earn their Money Manager badge, Juniors will earn their Business Owner badge, and Cadettes will earn their Budgetting badge. Badges are included in the price.
Join us for a day of high society in the Victorian Era. Daisies will earn their Gloria Petal, Brownies will earn their Making Friends Badge and Juniors will earn their Social Butterfly badge. They will partake in activities throughout the village and end the day with their own tea party. It will be a day of fun with a historic twist! Making Friends and Social Butterfly Badges are included in the price. Daisies will receive a DHV patch instead of a Glorial petal.
History Museum Explorers Patch
Ever wonder what life was like for girls in the late 1800s? This patch encourages scouts of all levels to tour the museum and investigate the daily life of pioneer and Victorian girls. The tour will lead you through multiple buildings and includes the instructions and supplies for various hands-on activities. This tour is self-guided, however all materials and information are provided when you check in.

History is full of mysteries and some of them even hide in the houses at the Village. Follow the QR codes to watch videos with clues. Solve the mysteries and earn your patch!
Badge workshop days are rain or shine.
