The most memorable thing about the Little House, is how LITTLE it really was! The TV shows of my childhood were misleading. I enjoy the history and the nature in the Little House on the Prairie tour, including the surrounding "village".

We were headed to Branson and saw the sign. So we followed the signs and directions and found this little nugget. $3 to do the tour and friendly staff. Loved it.

As a lifelong Little House fan and mom of young Little House fans, this was a "must see" on our way through Kansas. It's a small and unassuming little place, but you definitely get a feel for how it must've been back when the Ingalls...More

Do not rely on your GPS. Print the directions off the Internet as they suggest. I've seen the house Paw built in DeSmet, the Rocky Ridge house in Missouri, and now this one from Little House on the Prairie. Harder to imagine life back then...More
