Laura Ingalls Wilder Historic Home and Museum Reviews
I grew up watching Little House on the Prairie with my parents so we totally enjoyed our trip to the spot where she wrote her books. We did both the farm and Rock House tour. The Visitor Centre has a ... more »
We loved seeing the place where so many of our daughter's favorite books were written. The docents at bothe original house and the Rock House were very friendly, informative and knowledgible. The surr... more »
Hubby and I visited here for our 25th Wedding Anniversary! The drive alone is great, if you like winding country roads! Museum was wonderful with interesting timelines, personal artifacts, photos, and... more »
My husband and I LOVED the (2) homes, grounds, and museum. We spent (5+) hours and read nearly all the information about the wonderful museum exhibits. Awesome gift shop. We also drove into Mansfield and viewed the graves of Laura, Almanzo, and Rose. Suggestions would be to have female guides wear reproductions of Laura's white lawn dress (or other period), provide photo ops with Laura's life-size photo cut-out in museum area, advertise the eggs for sale and explain source as from the grounds, and post future planned improvements to entice visitors to come again!
Enjoyed getting to do the homestead walk through, but it was by tour group times only and was too crowded to get to spend the amount of time that I wanted to see everything. It would have been great if you were aloud to walk through freely, even if supervised. The museum and store was great and very modern. Definitely recommend if you're a "Little House" fan.
WAY OVERPRICED! Our family of 5 stopped by on the way home from camping, we've wanted to visit but never had made the time (we live 2 hours away). I have been as a child and It was free for kids and very inexpensive for adults. Not the case anymore. We were told it would be 50 dollars for our family. Never did they tell me that 6 years of age and under were free. So, now that I am home and checked the prices online it should have cost our family $35. No matter because we did not pay the money and go through. Very disappointed! It seems that they could make this experience more inexpensive as it really would (and does I'm sure) spark young readers to want to read her books.
First time family visit. New museum and visitor center is gorgeous. Staff was warm and welcoming. The tour was informative and quick. Well stocked gift shop
I loved coming here! I'm a huge fan and loved seeing the real home and belongings of Laura and almonzos things and all their hard work. Her books are amazing, it's like your living each detail word by word and I loved getting to visit this place and can't wait to go back!
