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

“Park of Nordic attractions”
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.

“Wonder History Lesson”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

Great little park that introduces you to the heritage of the area. The visitors center offers a library of guides for ND and a small gift shop. The staff on hand are very helpful and answered all our questions.

“Fun for someone of Norwegian heritage”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

Gift shop is nice and the few guides in some of the buildings were very nice and knowledgeable. It was going through some grounds renovations but still pretty and fun.
