“Very nice place to visit.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

Our first visit there and wish it hadn't been so blasted hot or we would have stayed longer. The tour guide took us into alot of little bldgs from the past....we couldn't stay in them long as the heat was unbearable. Go when the weather is more comfortable. Our tour guide knew her history and was very nice. Cute place!

“Loved our visit to Little Norway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

Even tho it was extremely hot and sunny the day we visited, it was still a great visit to Little Norway. We learned a lot and the grounds and buildings are so pretty. I'd go back again.

“Wish we could have spent the day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

We purchased the SouthWest Wisconsin pass ( http://www.southwestwi.com/swwvbpass.php ) so the visit was basically free for us. It was a hot, rainy day when we visited, but I would visit again on a better day and bring a picnic. My youngest daughter was convinced the place was magical from the start - gnomes hiding everywhere, beautiful flowers and lots of wildlife. Great experience, and they encourage you to wonder around the grounds after the tour.

“A beautiful piece of Wisconsin History”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

While it is a short trip on Hwy 151 to Little Norway, it is well worth it. The staff a friendly and can share vivid stories that really tell the history of first Norwegian settlers in Wisconsin. The displays are fabulous. It is family friendly and we will continue to visit.
