The Laura Ingalls Wilder Museum commemorates the Wilder family's time in the Walnut Grove area, as well as the pioneer lifestyle. There are several Laura Ingalls Wilder Museums across the country; this one has a series of interesting buildings, including a railroad depot, a chapel, an onion-domed house, a dugout display, an antique doll collection, and more.

What makes this Wilder location truly unique is the Wilder pageant play that is held every weekend in July. Built into a hillside amphitheater, the play draws large crowds and has extensive lighting, sound, and pyrotechnics. Yeah, you read that right...pyrotechnics.
