We happened to stop by during the IPO of the movie "Koshkokong Prairie" and found this museum interesting. Mostly about the Scandinavian immigrants leaving their homelands and settling in the area. Museum is free, donations are requsted. We enjoyed our visit

Being of Norwegian heritage I was very interested in coming to the museum. I learned a lot about the area of Norway I descended from. Free admission was nice. Well worth the time.

A very pleasant surprise, with very educational and interesting exhibits, concerning the life of immigrants from Norway, and their journey to the Midwestern United States. If your heritage is Norwegian, it might well be a "must see", and if you are into geneology, they operate...More

This new museum is full of interesting tidbits about the Norwegian immigrants who settled around here. The interactive touch screens are informative and easy to use. The building is appointed with lots of wood and carving, and would be impressive even without the displays. AND...More

This attraction is free and provides insight into the lives of the Norwegian immigrants that settled in America. We found it to be entertaining and educational. We spent 90 minutes there but could have spent most of the day here if we had more time.
