This really a neat place to visit but it's not extensive enough to warrant a purposeful trip. There are a couple of buildings, a few statues and a nice gift shop. It is well done and something you should see if you are passing through Minot. The only exception might be when they have their annual festival.

Want to take a nice scenic walk that makes you feel you've left Minot? This is the place to do so. The grounds are always kept very nicely. Even in the winter, it's just a pretty place in the center of town. Children enjoy the various buildings there and it's a relaxing time.

Stopped by as it was recommended by a friend and wasn't disappointed. The buildings are amazing and there is always someone to tell you the story about it. I spent almost two hours before my flight and relaxed in this wonderful place. If you visit Minot, you must go there. Children will love this park.

We stopped here with my two smaller children and handicapped mom (not in a chair). Everyone was able to do everything. It was a nice little trip though history and interesting enough to keep the kids involved. They were able to go in the buildings see and even touch things. The weather is obviously a factor to consider here, you... More

We were looking for a place on our GPS to have a picnic lunch and we found this park. What a find! We were not expecting such an informative, neat experience! The adults and kids all learnt something. The volunteers were so friendly and really went above and beyond to teach us new things. Everything was free. If you have... More

Small park in the middle of Minot. Several cool statues and buildings to see, along with a big center/gift shop. Place in kind of run down and not well maintained, but a nice place to stop for awhile.

We visited this park after accidentally discovering it while driving by. Our kids loved it, the replica church is amazing in its exact detailing and size. The other buildings in the village setting were beautiful replicas as well, they were great hands on discoveries for our toddlers. The grounds are very well kept, boasting many areas suitable for family fun.
