The World of Little House Opening in Wisconsin

See recent posts by Lissa Poirot

Generations have loved Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House on the Prairie series of books that took an autobiographical look at life in the Midwestern prairie in the 1800s. Now, adults and children alike can enjoy a sample of life on the prairie with the new “The World of Little House” at Old World Wisconsin.

The summer event takes place June 15 through July 31. Visitors can sample Laura’s chores, such as churning butter and making soap, and prepare foods with Ma, as well as enjoy interactive storytelling experiences. Special sessions include a threshing weekend, July 25 and 26, when the hay is harvested, as well as a Little House Wedding Dinner, also on July 26, where guests attend and celebrate a pioneer wedding with food, drink, music and dancing in the barn.

The events take place daily, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and are included in Old World Wisconsin’s regular admission: $19 for ages 13 and up, $10 for children 4 to 12, and free for kids under 4. Anyone dressed like a Little House character receives 20 percent off of individual admission.
