We enjoyed the tour and seeing the re-created school where Laura taught. In the gift shop, I actually liked some of the smaller items best. The re-created calling cards that Laura exchanged with her teen-aged friends were fun. I really appreciated the list of Scriptures in her own handwriting that was reproduced from the actual copy found in her Bible.
I think De Smet has more history about Laura than any of the other museums since she lived there during her pre-teen years and for the first four years of her marriage.
The whole town is so realistic and well-kept to preserve her great history.
