The museum is small but did have quite a few artifacts from Laura’s time and I enjoyed how they displayed them with excerpts from the book. The covered wagon was really neat to see. Down the road is a replica cabin which was also a...More

Unlike many small town museums, this place has been curated. They have an interesting collection of artifacts, logically arranged, that give a sense of pioneer life. A Little House in the Big Woods guides all the exhibits, but knowledge of Laura Ingalls Wilder to enjoy...More

So this is a pretty random stop in an area that is kind of off the beaten path, however we are big fans and we were in the area so we went out of the way to get here. The museum itself is small, but...More

I hadn't planned to go to the museum. We drove by it a route to somewhere else. It was fun and we went through it in less than 30 minutes. I would recommend for anyone that enjoys the Wilder world :)

We stopped by the Laura Ingalls Wilder Museum before going to the cabin. The entry fee is expensive for what you get but for Ingalls fans, it is almost acceptable. The museum is more about the life in Pepin at the time the Ingalls were...More
