Not much to do in Minot but the park is a lovely way to spend an afternoon. The houses are highly detailed and very pretty. Bring your camera.

Very authentic architecture made by Scandinavian tradesmen in the traditional, ornate, precise manner handed down for centuries. There are live people to provide information and background history, and there are random fun facts thrown in around the park as well as lovely grounds to enjoy. The only disappointment was the limited selection at the gift shop. In years past there... More

Interesting nordic buildings in a nice park setting. Free admission and easy access off of Broadway (Hwy 83). Recommend.

I stumbled onto this place. Was just looking for a place to get out and walk a bit. It's on Broadway but I almost drove by it. I noticed the wonderful buildings on display here and decided to stop. It is preserved and cared for by volunteers and donations. (You are not required to give one penny...you just enjoy others... More

Beautiful buildings with exquisite details. Take a leisurally stroll past Scandinavian architectural treasures. A real treat for anyone of Scandanavian heritage. Be sure to check out the statue of Hans Christian Anderson. He's delightful with his long skinny torso and oh so long feet. This is a lovely park indeed.

So much to see! Old buildings and an authentic Scandinavian church. Lots of history in the park. They have plaques explaining everything as you go. If you are in Minot this is a must see!

This is one of my favorite parks to visit. First, it's beautiful. But, it also has such great character. It's fun to walk around and read about history/culture. It's not just an average park. Plus, the Visitors Center is at this same location so it's nice to stop in and find out what else there is to see in the... More

Nothing interactive, but it's a cool place to see. I have enjoyed taking pictures of the scandinavian feel of it.

I visited on a summer Monday, not many visitors around. Weather was nice, not too hot. Thus my overall walk down the park was great. I'm amazed with the awesome retirees volunteering at the exhibits. I had a wonderful chat with two of them. Felt like chatting with my own grandmum, very lovely. One was sitting quietly in front of... More
