Great little park that introduces you to the heritage of the area. The visitors center offers a library of guides for ND and a small gift shop. The staff on hand are very helpful and answered all our questions.

Gift shop is nice and the few guides in some of the buildings were very nice and knowledgeable. It was going through some grounds renovations but still pretty and fun.

An open air exhibit. Walk from building to building and enjoy the tour. There is plenty to see and enjoy. There are reconstructed houses, buildings and a church.

Our family visited Minot for the Easter break this year. Took a tour of the Scandinavian Heritage Park and it was snowing out. Everything was locked up because the season hadn't started yet. Took a few pictures and then jumped back into the van!

Nice setting with the centerpiece being the wooden church. Ponds needed attention but overall a nice short stroll to discover the roots of Scandinavia in the northern plains.
