Field of Dreams Movie Site, Dyersville

4.6
#2 of 31 in Fun & Games in Iowa
Visit one of the most iconic movie settings of all time at Field of Dreams Movie Site, the setting for the baseball-themed film of the same name. Originally constructed in 1988 across two local farms, the field became the site of Kevin Costner's experience with the ghosts of past baseball players in the 1989 movie. Visit the famous cornfield and see the grounds of the farmhouse, preserved and maintained to look just like the stomping grounds of Shoeless Joe Jackson. You may even catch a real session of America's pastime played by a rotating roster of "ghost" players inspired by the film.

    If you are a true baseball fan this stop is a must. Wish we would have brought a glove. The field and corn make you feel like you are sitting in the movie. There are several great photo opportunities ...  more »

    If you love the movie you must visit. We visited on a sunny August day with the corn standing tall and just perfect for disappearing into the rows. Delighted to find it is not commercialised and not c...  more »

    I loved the movie and visiting the Field Of Dreams did not let me down. July 4th weekend and there were a lot of people there. People set up chairs around the diamond, kids playing baseball, a real slice of Americana. The extra bonus was the ghost players who emerged from the cornfield to play a game with audience participation. Great fun! The ghost players perform 4 times a year.

    We stumbled upon the sign that lead us to the location and am so happy we did. It was lovely! They even had a team that was playing and they let my kids join in. They stopped the game to let them run bases. The gal in the stand was so friendly and informational!

    It brought back memories of when I was younger. Going to the ball park and watching baseball game. Love the movie the place looked just like in the movie. Would go again.

    My review is somewhat biasd, since I am a big fan of the movie. The field takes you back to the scenes from the movie and you find yourself waiting for Shoeless Joe's and the rest of the Black So to walk out from the cornfield. Aside from the sovenier shop and an informational board, everything is where it should. It isn't heaven, it's Iowa.
