Field of Dreams Movie Site
Is this Heaven? No, it’s Iowa. A place of fertile soil, traditional values and simple pleasure. And in Dyersville, Iowa, at the century-old Lansing family farm with its quaint, and oh so recognizable house, baseball still ranks as a favorite pastime for all ages. What better place to carve a baseball diamond from a corn field and to make a movie about pursuing one’s dream, no matter how much effort it takes?
Field of Dreams, released in 1989, is a movie that has inspired millions and became an Academy Award nominee for “Best Picture of the Year.” Welcome to this home, this farm, this baseball field, this little piece of heaven on earth. Welcome to this place where reality mixes with fantasy and dreams can come true.
This place is magic. There was no team emerging from the corn during our visit in early fall, but I still got chills walking up to the field. I've wanted to visit since I was little. The grounds are kept immaculate, the volunteers/staff are helpful and friendly, and the house tour is worth it if you're a fan (I am). The folks who keep this place love it and it shows. No surprise here that people keep coming to see it. It's beautiful.
Depending on the time of the year, and certain days/dates there's special events, and ball games going on. My wife and I stopped in the fall they weren't offering tours at the time, but it was still cool to be able to walk around, take pictures, and play catch on the field. If you're in the area, enjoyed the movie or a baseball fan it's well worth the stop.
Spectacular!! A movie buff's must see, when near the area or hell even if outside the area. This is an amazing opportunity to walk the remains of a movie set that was used in the movie Field of Dreams. There is even an opportunity to donate money for building more baseball fields that will bring so much joy to baseball players and fans through hosting tournaments. Fireballrun Adventurally an Amazon TV series even filmed a segment at this location.
Love it! Was a great stop on a road trip thru Iowa. You can actually go out there and run the bases and or throw the ball around. You could bat if you bring a wiffle ball. Check the website for reenactment days. Get some swag also. Bring a lawn chair a ball and a glove and relax pretty cool vibe.
If you want to see cornfields and imagine the baseball greats emerging from within the rows, you’re going to be disappointed. Today, the home stands alone, removed from farming. If, however, you want to check out the field, the original house from the movie, and walk the same grounds as Kevin Costner, this is totally worth the stop. If you want to grab a bite or coffee, the small nearby town of Dyersville has a few good options, but I wouldn’t recommend staying a day/night here, just for this attraction. You can easily be in and out in an hour.
