This is an excellent museum to tour to learn more about Charles Lindbergh. The displays are well-done with many of the possessions of the pilot throughout his life. There is an informative film shown that is a brief autobiography, and on the main floor a second theater has a ten minute film describing his Atlantic solo flight. The model of... More

Camp sites are small but hiking is nice. The park offers history for a little added something for a day trip or camping weekend.

We have lived in Minnesota our entire lives but had never visited here. What a mistake we made waiting so long. Having heard only bits and pieces of 'Lucky Lindy's' life, this museum and house filled in all the holes. The house is original to the family (after the first one burned in 1905) and is filled with mostly items... More

Well worth your time to visit. The childhood home was pretty neat and the museum, while kind of small, was packed full of neat stuff. Several interesting videos. I had no idea he was such a complex personality.

This historical site is a must see if near the Little Falls, MN area. It shows that even famous people are really just like others in life. Charles' family was quite dysfunctional and he was not the type to embrace the formal learning environment; yet he had a brilliant mechanical mind and took every opportunity to solve challenges. This a... More

Nestled in the park-like setting of Little Falls, Minnesota is a unique historical site- the childhood home of Charles A. Lindbergh. Since 1931, shortly after his monumental solo transatlantic flight, the Lindbergh family deeded the 110-acre estate to the state of Minnesota. Since 1969, the Minnesota Historical Society has been entrusted in maintaining the property and more importantly, in telling... More

Not a 'modernized' historical site. The house is as Lindbergh's have just left. Others in the area have been turned into bed & breakfasts and modern appliances. This is all the "neat old stuff."

It was going to cost us nearly $50 for my family of 7 to get in (1 adult, 2 seniors, and 4 kids), which initially gave me cause to think twice. Not only was the guided tour of Limbergh's boyhood home worth it, the surprisingly well-stocked museum added to the whole experience. By the time we finished the nearly half-hour... More

My husband and I took our 3yr old and 12yr old here for a day trip on Saturday. They had the "Meet the Lindbergh's" going on which my 12yr old history buff loved! Actors portraying his Mom and staff had many great stories about the family. The kids got to try washing laundry on a washboard and mow the lawn... More
