Pretty cool for those of us who grew up on the Little House books to see where they were written, walk in Laura's house, and just experience her surroundings. Seeing Pa's fiddle was a highlight. Well presented museum, easy trip.

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.

On a single pass you get admission both to the Laura Ingalls Wilder Home and Museum. But the highlight is truly the new museum that opened just last year - 2016. (previously it was attached to the home). Located next door, the Museum has a...More

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