  • I have been here a couple times and it is very fun and a great place to take the kids if around the area. It has everything you would want to know about the Television show from the 70's and 80's and ...  more »
  • If you were a fan of Little House on the Prairie you will love the history of this place. A lot of original items that belonged to the Ingalls family are in this museum. Very cool to see.  more »

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Good, but not as good as a visit to DeSmet, SD. Better for fans of the show.
  • Awesome history captured here.
