This was my second visit to Laura Ingalls wilder museum. I was very impressed with the new facility and the gift shop. Laura's home is well kept and the hosts shared amusing stories and facts of her life. Great place to visit

This is the location where Laura Ingalls Wilder wrote her series of books. There is a nice Musuem with gif shop. They have a guided tour and it is highly recommended.

It depends on how long you linger looking at the extensive collection of items. We probably spent about four hours between the two houses and the museum.
