  • Such cute museum! Loved the real history and the tv history. $10 entry for Adults is do reasonable. Wish I would have made it to their Wilder Pageant!

  • A nice little museum dedicated to the famous author. Several buildings are in an enclosed area which you have to pay to visit, a gift shop (of course). We spent a bit of time there, bought postcards.....  more

  • Cute place to tour for us and our kids after reading the books. It seemed to be geared more toward adults, but our kids still really enjoyed it. Afterwards you can go across the street to Nellie's Cafe for a small town diner. Bring cash or plan on walking to the ATM. The staff was very friendly.
  • Clean, nice staff, had a place where children could play called the Grandma's Attic, and its amazing seeing all the items in the museum. They have a room where they have about soldiers and there is a jar that said about taken a soldier home and place it where you can see to remember to prey.
  • This was a great place to visit. The Museum has actual history worth exploring. The show memorabilia was impressive. The buildings were lots of fun. The staff in the gift shop were so engaging. Unlike the other place in a nearby site, this has the stuff you will be happy you visited.
  • Had an AMAZING time here. Drove from WA to celebrate my 40th so I could live out my dreams of the life of Laura Ingalls. Staff is so kind and friendly and helpful. The museum is exactly what your thinking it's gonna be and it's so kid friendly. I highly recommend stopping by!
  • This was actually more fun and interesting than I had expected! I think the best part was hearing my daughters come to realize that Little House On the Prairie was actually based on true stories! The museum has some interesting things to see. One of my favorites was the sod house. This is definitely worth the stop!!
