Not much there. But for a Laura Ingalls Wilder fan it would be worth the stop. Nice ladies working. Cute little gift shop and neat history. Ingalls family photos and history. I was glad we took the few minutes to stop. Unfortunately it had rained...More

I'm a history lover and this was so nice! My kids learned about early settlers and my husband and I enjoyed the educational trip. Don't pass thru the area without stopping!

The museum is a little ways down a country road connected to US 75, and it is well worth the visit. While most of the items there are reproductions or period appropriate pieces rather than the original Ingalls artifacts, seeing the homestead in its proper...More
