“A most stop if traveling through Minot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

This is a wonderful park with replicas from each of the five Scandinavian Countries. The Norwegian Gol Stave Church Museum is absolutely incredible! Plenty of picnic tables and would be a great place to sit and enjoy lunch with family.

“Scandinavian Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

Loved this park! Staff was soooo knowledgeable, friendly & helpful. Amazing what a community can do. The water way was not really working & was blocked off, but it did not really detract from our enjoyment.

“To Snotty blonde behind desk: "It's a WELCOME center. Act like it!"”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

Very interesting architecture and nicely done park, but when you meet someone like HER, it ruins the whole experience.

“Park of Nordic attractions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

This park has buildings and artistic designs representative of the 5 Nordic countries: Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. There is a visitors center with maps, books, art, carpentry, t-shirts, and other things often found in a visitors center or gift shop. There are other buildings that are of the design of particular countries that include some art and some tools. There is a museum in one of the more modern buildings. There are statues scattered around the grounds. The church pictured above is very ornate with intricate carvings. There were a couple of volunteers who presented orated information about some of the buildings to any visitors who wanted to listen. It is kind of a small park but very easy to navigate. I enjoyed walking along the self-guided tour, taking photographs and talking with the volunteers.
