EnlargeThere are lots of hands-on activities during The World of Little House.

Enjoy some of the same games and chores as Laura Ingalls Wilder and her family and friends.


For 1 week in July, Old World Wisconsin will become a World of Little House and you are invited!

Step into the World of Little House with us as we celebrate the 150th Anniversary of Laura Ingalls Wilder's birth right here in Wisconsin.  Activities mentioned in the Little House stories come to life through fun hands-on programs for the entire family. From the moment you arrive and climb into the covered wagon, you'll know it's a day to celebrate all things Little House!  Highlights include:

  • A chance to meet "Laura" as portrayed by Actress Jessica Michna.
  • A special Ingalls Family Scavenger Hunt
  • New experiences, including dressing up like Ma and making your very own Calling Card 

Sponsored by Old World Foundation, funding Old World Wisconsin with stewardship and integrity since 1984
