In reality the 14-dollar entry fee is for three tours, the museum, the original Wilder house and the rock house their daughter built for them. Both houses had very informative tour guides and the museum appeared to be new and had a lot of original...More

We went for Wilder Day to listen to Pa's fiddle and see the new museum. It is wonderfully organized with many of the actual items mentioned in the books.

Visited today during Laura Ingalls Wilder day! Hadn't visited for many years! Loved the new museum and seeing all of the artifacts. We also visited both the farm house and the rock house. Love both houses! So cool that the farmhouse is pretty much as...More

The tour guides were nice and knowledgeable. It was a step into the past for sure, as both homes were well- preserved as if the author and her daughter were still living there. The museum had lots of pieces from her life, including a display...More

The new museum - plus the access to the Rock House -- make a trip to Mansfield worthwhile, even if you have been to see the Laura Ingalls Wilder home before. We were there maybe 25 years ago and it was great to tour the...More

We have had the pleasure of visiting all of Laura's homesteads with the exception of Walnut Grove. This is number one on my list. It's the final home built by Laura and Almanzo. We toured their main home (we did not have time to visit...More

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