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.

It was very nice to walk through the past. Kids stayed occupied as well as the adults. A bit disheartened to find out all but one on the buildings were original. Others are just replicas but still nice. The woman in the visitors center however was very rude. Trying to get answers out of her was basically impossible so we... More

There is nothing quite like the Hostfest in Minot. It happens every year around the end of September and it is amazing. Tens of thousands of people (mostly Scandinavian, I am assuming) travel to this little North Dakota town to celebrate all things Scandinavian. There are sooooooo many concerts. Several stages, and music happening everywhere. Some of them cost more... More
