Make sure you check to see if Little Norway is still operating. I think they went out of business sometime in the late summer of 2013.

It was interesting to see the houses and there is some history but my 12 and 13 yr olds were DONE after about 10 min. It is pretty and little ones would like to run around the grassy area. Maybe a good trip for the extended family.

We drove out of our way to visit little Norway, after finding it advertised in all our pamphlets. When we stopped at the Mount Horeb information center, we were informed that the owner is losing money and decided not to open for the season. It would have been nice to have some indication of that online or in the dells... More

It was closed for the year. No explanation as to why but it looked like it would have some interesting buildings to go through. We couldn't get very close as the road was roped off.

We visited with a ticket bought in a combo pack with Cave of the Mounds. It was interesting, and I learned a lot about Norway and it's culture, houses, furnishings, history, etc. I especially liked the needlework and linens that are displayed. Small children might not find it terribly interesting. It is possible that it is no longer open, as... More

This was fun, the grounds were very nice, the house was beautiful, and the people working there were very nice. Women dressed in Norwegian dresses, the architecture of the buildings, all very relaxing and welcoming.

Little Norway takes the visitor back in time to a different place an time. Not only that--you learn a great deal about life in a Scandinavian settlement. Many of the artifacts you see are unique,rare, precious, and fascinating. Be sure to bring your camera. Even on a hot day, Little Norwway is cool in the valley it is tucked in.... More

I have taken my girls here multiple times. They really enjoy it. I haven't been here since it has changed hands. Its is educational but fun at the same time.

After my family and I explored Cave of the Mounds, we decided to see if this attraction was open. The sign in front of the driveway stated that it may open 2014! So I guess they will be closed 2013. Mt Horeb however is a quaint little town that you can spend an hour touring and taking pictures of their... More
