I read the Little House books when I was in elementary school some 40 years ago, yet I felt like a little girl opening a Christmas present on this tour. It brought back some memories of some of the best books I have ever read. Laura Ingalls Wilder's life and storytelling ability made for some great reading and this museum... More

We have read all the Little House books, books about the Wilders, Rose's books, pamphlets, newsletters, etc. We've visited DeSmet, Walnut Grove, and Big Woods sites. We are Laura fans. This house and Roses' Rock house are great. It was a priviledge to be there.

I have three young girls AND we like to do road trips. Thus we have been fortunate enough to see several of Laura's houses. This is the best and most informative Laura Tribute that we have seen. We had two great tour guides which were very informative. I do believe that if you do not have a great tour guide... More

It was a great day for a visit to Laura Ingalls Wilder's home - sunny, not too warm, the farm charming. The tour guides were friendly, the artifacts interesting, and the two houses brought visitors back to the early 20th century . However, the organization of the tours should be improved. By the time the tour was ready to begin... More

Don't pass up an opportunity to see the homestead where Laura Ingalls Wilder lived when she wrote the Little House books. Tours are conducted on a regular schedule and are led by well-informed guides. Tickets are very reasonably priced. The property has two houses, a museum, and a gift shop. There's plenty to learn here about Laura's life, values, and... More

We really enjoyed the tours of both of the homes that the Wilders lived in. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and helpful. Would highly recommend this tour well worth the fees.

My boyfriend and I made a special trip up through the Ozarks to visit the museum and home. I was so excited to make the trip out there as I have great memories of reading Laura's books when I was little. My boyfriend didn't read the books but remembered the old tv show, so he agreed to go with me.... More

My husband and I (no kids) visited here on a Monday afternoon in mid-June. Given that the place is far from anywhere, we expected we might be the lone visitors that day. We were so wrong! As a fan of the author from girlhood, I was delighted to see about 40 people scattered among the houses and museum. It seems... More

I read the Little House books as a child and I have re-read them many times as an adult. This spring my 9 year old daughter began reading the series. We were very excited to spend an afternoon away from Branson (our vacation destination) to explore Rocky Ridge Farm. My daughter was enthralled to see the items from Laura's life... More
