There were lots of old photographs of the Ingalls family members.
Another huge attraction for the kids is the covered wagon. The kids can step up and see all the typical items the pioneers would have traveled with.
We really enjoyed the museum and we were surprised to see how many other people were there in the middle of a work week. It is quite the attraction! The Laura Ingalls Wilder book and tv series is very popular. Pepin, Wisconsin also has "Laura Ingalls Wilder Days": "a family-oriented event featuring arts & educational entertainment based on the early American pioneer experience of storybook author Laura Ingalls Wilder. It's held annually (the second full weekend in September) in the village and surrounding hillsides of her birthplace - Pepin, Wisconsin."
After touring the museum we went to my favorite restaurant in Pepin, the "Garden Pub & Grille". I just love the food and outdoor atmosphere. It reminds me of the beach restaurants in Florida. Of course the kids had to get their picture taken in the gigantic chair first!
I hope you enjoyed my little tour of Pepin, Wisconsin. If you're ever in the area, be sure to stop in! The museum is open daily May 1 through October 17th, 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. Admission is $2.00 for a child, $5.00 for an adult, or $14.00 for the entire family.
