We almost overlooked this fantastic park. I travelled with my mother's choir from Norway to Minot to sing with them at the Høstfest festival. On our way out from a store we saw a magnificent Stave church so we went closer to see. Admission is free, and its kind of a must see to get some of the history behind... More

We toured this park and visitor center when we were in town in August and enjoyed it very much. This time we only drove by but were impressed by the Christmas decorations set up in the park. A beautiful sight to behold.

It's really a beautiful building inside and out. The Hostfest is great. Lots of fun and sites to see. People were really friendly and informative. My family and I had a great time.

Stop by on a recent shopping visit to Minot. The day we went all the buildings were closed but you could still walk the park and take in the beautiful buildings. Will for sure make a point of coming back in the summer. It is a beautiful, well maintained park and the Scandinavian buildings are breathtaking.

Had a lot of Minot stuff and Scandinavian things. The people were very friendly. A great place to pick up gifts for a family or friends

Very cool park easy to find, lots of history here. Tours of the houses would be awesome. you can complete the walk in half hour 45 minutes. So if you are planning things to do and see, this one is a quick stop off on your way to the next destination. Definitely worth the stop!

Clean, well laid out historic park. I am of Scandinavian descent so especially found the Old church interesting. Lovely walking paths. Historical items well documented.

Wandering around Minot with my Airman son we stopped here. Seems to be a half-finished park. I suppose if you have an interest in things Scandinavian.....

Thank Ken J
