We found this tour to be fantastic of the Almanzo Wilder's boyhood home, and the rebuilt barns and schoolhouse. Thorough tour with lots of information. We also enjoyed the museum before the tour and walked down to the Trout River across the road from the home. Great general history information of the every day life in Pioneer time and early...

We are a large family who have enjoyed reading the Little House books out loud several times, and Farmer Boy is the family favorite. I highly recommend reading it before you visit as it will make the visit far more enjoyable. We were on our way to Canada for a family vacation and went out of our way to go... More

Visiting the Wilder farm for me was a childhood dream fulfilled after 44 years! The wonderful guides and staff at the visitor's center are friendly and very knowledgeable about the history of the Wilder family and farm life in general. This is a "must see" for any fan of the Laura Ingalls Wilder books!

I have long been a fan of Laura Ingalls Wilder, and I have visited DeSmet, SD, and Mansfield, MO, but had never toured the Almanzo Wilder home in Malone, NY, until last weekend. It's a beautiful spot with a great, informative staff, and the tour was great - for lovers of Laura and for lovers of history. Our guide was... More

The Wilder Homestead is a very well executed historic venue that accurately portrays rural life in the mid 1800's. The Wilder home has been restored to its state during Almanzo's boyhood, and the barns have been reconstructed in accordance with Almanzo's drawings. There are countless reminders and ties to Laura Ingalls Wilder's biography of a year of her husband's childhood... More

This property is an amazing place to visit to go back in time and to see how people lived, worked, and survived! It is only $8.50 to take the tour and to see the farm and home Almonzo Wilder grew up in. It is so amazing to see in person all of the things that Laura Ingalls Wilder talked about... More

The Wilder homestead has been revitalized for a better understanding of a by gone era. Lots of antiques and photos, and it just happened that they were having an irish fest the day we went there. They should have more festivals to bring in people. Vendors, food, and entertainment, a very nice day.

I love old buildings and my wife and daughter like the Little House books - so a win win situation. The tour took 2 hours (it was raining, so I don't know if that affected the time at all). The museum part was cool, but I think the house was my favorite. Great for history buffs and kids alike.

I've been to every little house location except this one but I finally got here. Lovely visit to the homestead. Enjoyed the Morgan Horse Show very much. Great gift shop and little museum.
