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.

I was driving to Branson, MO recently, and didn't realize I'd be going right through Mansfield, MO, where the Laura Ingalls Wilder Historic Home and Museum is. As a huge Little House fan (books and TV show), I was happy to have plenty of time...More

It was special to visit the Rocky Ridge houses and museum! The exhibits are beautifully displayed and seeing actual manuscripts and illustrations made this librarian happy! The only thing disappointing was not being allowed to take pictures. There were so many plaques to read and...More
