Come and see a replica of the town where the American author Laura Ingalls Wilder grew up.

This museum is open every day except Sundays and Wednesdays from 10 am to 4 pm. Winter hours tend to be limited so it is best to come here during the spring or summer months. The museum itself comprises multiple buildings including a chapel, schoolhouse, dugout, and covered wagon display. You will also see memorabilia from the Little House on the Prairie TV show that aired during the 1970s and 1980s. There are several exhibits that show things such as the bible used at Laura’s childhood church, historic handwritten letters and articles, photos, and even quilts owned by Laura. 

The quaint town of Walnut Grove also puts on an annual pageant called the Wilder pageant. This event usually takes place in July and portrays some of the big events in the life of Laura Ingalls Wilder during her early years. No pets or video recordings are allowed at the pageant. If you want to attend the pageant, it takes place Southwest of Walnut Grove. For the best seating, purchase tickets in advance. It begins at 8:30 pm and usually ends around 10:30. Plum Creek Park is nearby and has a campground available if you would like to spend multiple days in the area.
