Good tour of homes where Laura Ingalls Wilder lived as an adult and wrote the Little House books. Well furnished with original furnishings. Interesting information given by dosent about the family. We should have allowed more time to watch the film and explore the museum.

We have been to many "house museums" at this one is the best we have been to. Virtually all the contents are original to Laura and Almanzo and our tour guide was great. The main museum is loaded with Ingalls/Wilder items including Pa's fiddle.

You've read her books, now you need to visit her home, discover her family and farm, and tour her museum. Great attraction for entire family.

The house is as it was the day she passed away. The museum had lots of pictures and family items. If you're in the area definitely stop and visit!

The museum is just full of neat things. Pa’s fiddle is in a show case. There are a lot of family photos and items they used in their lives in there too. The guided tour of the house was very informative.

This is a very rural area, so there is no public transportation.
