Also on display are memorabilia from visits by the following stars from the "Little House on the Prairie" TV series:

 - Karen Grassle (Ma)
 - Melissa Sue Anderson (Mary)
 - Katherine McGregor (Mrs. Oleson)
 - Alison Arngrim (Nellie Oleson)

Another feature of Laura Ingalls Wilder Museum is the Kelton Doll Collection, including over 250 dolls from the 1870's to modern times.  This colorful exhibit represents Beulah Kelton's lifelong passion.  A wide selection of books, souvenirs, bonnets, aprons, and locally hand-crafted items are available in the Gift Store.
