We stopped at Laura Ingalls Wilder Museum in Walnut Grove on our way across Minnesota. We parked the camper on the street and walked across to the museum and bought the tickets. The museum was made up of several different buildings having to do with prairie life. We visited the Depot first. Inside there were several displays including Laura’s quilts and TV show memorabilia.
The next building we went into was the chapel. In the front of the chapel there was a row of tiny seats. There were stained glass windows too. Then we continued down the walkway to Grandma’s house. Grandma’s house was built in 1890, After Laura had left. Inside they had a kitchen display, dolls, and a hands on room.
The we walked past the jail which was exactly like a bird cage, but with out a roof. Next we came to the Dugout. This was a replica of the one that was down by Plum Creek. We stopped at the Old Red School house and then went to the Settlers Home.
The last building we stopped at was the Heritage Lane building. Inside they had a hands on area. Marcus and I played at the store for a while. I am glad we got to stop at Laura Ingalls Wilder museum in Walnut Grove.
