Meadow Farm Museum Reviews
Spend an hour checking out things and walking around particularly the hiking paths. Great exercise. Very relaxing environment. Beautiful park. more »
You have living history. Then you have Meadow Farm. You think you are on a tour, but you actually go back in time and live out what the people lived back in the day. more »
Meadow Farm is the crown jewel of Glen Allen. A wonderful historical farm, a park with playgrounds, and plenty of places to play Pokemon Go. What more could you ask for? What, you need to get in a ten mile long run? Meadow Farm has got you covered. Need a place to go to fun community events? Also Meadow Farm. It's the best.
Can't go wrong with a walk at Crump. They've got livestock and the museum if you're there with your kids, and have a fair bit of easily walkable trail system through the woods and around the pond if you're there with your pup. All in all a fair way to spend a couple hours in a quieter setting.
