This little museum is right off I-80 in Gothenburg. Take the exit for Comfort Suites and Lasso Expresso and follow those signs. The museum starts with the big red barn just behind Lasso Expresso and the Cubby convenience store. If it isn't open yet drive on past the barn and you can see the sod house. We were leaving before... 更多
The retired people who volunteer here are excited to explain the local history and are very friendly and helpful. Be sure to see the barbed wire statues.
This was a neat little museum that is located just off the interstate. The worker inside was welcoming, friendly, and knowledgeable. She gave us history of sod houses, and then of this property in particular. Finally, there is a sod house that is furnished like it would have been at the time of the pioneers. It was very interesting to... 更多
This is a (donations only) museum, with an attached gift shop that contains a number of artefacts and pictures. The attendee was very knowledgeable, and provided a mini tour of the artefacts in the shop. We were able to visit the recreated sodhouse. The museum is more interesting than you might think - and it is not too far from... 更多
I've always wanted to see a sod house. I've read about them, but never seen one. Admission is free (but leave a generous donation). The woman who greeted me was a fountain of information. It was just wonderful.

The barbed wire, full-scale, sculptures of Bison and Native Americans, are an interesting use of the material.... 更多
Turning off Interstate 80 on Highway 47 can lead a visitor to one of the most interesting displays in miles. Sod houses were widely used on the prairie when wood was not in sufficient supply to use for construction, yet few remain. This is an excellent example. Look closely to the left of Highway 47 for this experience.
Stopped in here for a brief visit. Very nice small museum of artifacts, and has a good example of a sod house. The lady at the museum was extremely knowledgeable and very interesting, and not intrusive - she was willing to talk if you were interested, but if you were not, she'd give you a bit of info to give... 更多
Sod house sits back behind convenience store, you would not hardly know it is there. You can look without being bothered or standing in line. It is a good reminder of mid-west history and how our ancestors may have lived
