    This Museum focuses a bit much on the TV version of Ingalls Wilder, but it was still enjoyable with lots of opportunities to learn about life on the early American frontier. Plan on spending a few hours here. In my judgment, the museum was worth its entrance price. The people were welcoming, and the facilities clean and informative.

    Built around the real Laura Ingalls Wilder as well as TV series! Pioneer dresses and other items in the gift shop. There is a church, school, many items of earlier time period! Contains the actual voice of Laura Ingalls before she died.Children will enjoy as well as adults!!!

    You really get a sense of how they lived in that time period from the replicas and displays. It's really nostalgic! So much to see

    Excellent mini-walking tour on the grounds includes a model sod house, church and schoolhouse. Provides historic information about the city itself, and ties the information back to Wilder's books. Well worth the visit!

    The staff is very friendly and helpful, just if you are planning to head to this place try to make it early so you are able to see everything because they close early in the day.
