Interesting place out in the countryside. Supposedly "near" where the original site was. There is some history here, and the site is kept up nicely. But, there is just not that much to see. Really. Despite that it draws folks from all over the country, and the world for that matter. Put it on your list if you're nearby.
We visited during the off season so couldn't get in the buildings, but still worth the stop. All buildings were period correct restorations moved in from other locations. Each one had a sign with a good description of the building's use and reference to Laura's books. I especially liked the direct quotes from the "Litte House" books that were posted... 更多
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 context gives you an appreciation for the books and for an earlier, simpler time.

I am not sure what I expected but it was very well done. The one room school was very impressive. The Post Office was cute. The replica of the Ingles House was very precise & realistic.

A step back in time (uncommercialized). Whether you have read or researched anything regarding Little House or not, just stepping on the ground at Little House on the Prairie will give you goosebumps!! Check it out, but be sure to go on the website to get hours of operation.
A reproduction of one of Laura Ingalls childhood homes, which LHOTP was based. It was about a 20 minute diversion from our path, but so glad we stopped.The main house is the Visitor center where we were greeted by a very nice informed woman who told us the history of the family, the home, & the local black physician/vetinarian. The... 更多
The people here are great. They are so kind, very informative about the Ingalls and out of their way helpful. We visited this summer and my kids loved it. The Post Office is great and the School House was amazing. The gift shop has lots of merchandise, and so many pieces of history relating to the Ingalls Family. If you're... 更多
