The Norwegian Laft Hus is a replica of an 18th century sod roof Norwegian farm house. It functions as a museum and culture centre that preserves and interprets Norwegian culture. Our museum is home to many Norwegian artifacts, and traditional hand made crafts. Our society also works to preserve the culture by offering a wide variety of classes and workshops to teach the pubic about Norwegian culture, usually by learning a traditional craft. The Norwegian Laft Hus also houses a small store from which you can buy handmade items, imported foods, cookware, and anything you need to show off Norwegian pride!

A good little museum dedicated to the Norwegian pioneers who settled in and around the Red Deer area. The place shows how a typical Norwegian family would have lived a hundred or more years ago. Also a good place to buy a souvenir of Norway.

The docent was very knowledgeable. Apparently this has been a labor of love for her and several others for the past 25 years or so, part of a dream for a cultural village that never materialized. They had a number of artifacts as well as a lot of Norwegian books and crafts. The group of ladies there who make the... More

Who knew this was here! A beautiful replica of a 17th century log house in Norway. The antique pieces are well displayed. There were ladies demonstrating traditional crafts too, rosemaling painting and hardanger embroidery. There were even items for sale, books, plates, mugs and Norwegian delicacies. There is a box for donations rather than an admission charge. I will need... More

We were warmly greeted by volunteers at the end of their shift, as we did not know their hours before we arrived. It was raining and we were on vacation, looking for something to spend some time that would have us dry and out of our RVs. My husband and I were travelling with our daughter, son-in-law and their two... More
