I gave this an excellent review because it was a wonderful place. However, It is now closed. If you want to see some of the artifacts from this site, many of the items have been acquired by the Mount Horeb Area Historical Society in downtown Mount Horeb.

24 September 2014 - Scott Winner decided to shut down Little Norway due to financial constraints. The buildings are up for sale and all the artifacts have been sold or donated. Artifacts have been donated to the Mount Horeb Area Museum, the Stoughton Norwegian Heritage Center, and the Museum of Wisconsin Art in West Bend. Hopefully, the Stave Church will... More

Just called since I thought this might be a nice stop after visiting Cave of the Mounds. Gentleman who answered answered with the greeting "Little Norway." Then after mentioning some of these reviews, he confirmed they are closed indefinitely.

We were looking forward to visiting this but it had a sign "Closed for the 2013 Season." The pictures of its attractions seemed most interesting since we have been to Norway and were anticipating seeing them.

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
