A fairly new and culturally interesting museum about the relatively new town of Solvang and the immigrants from Denmark who started it a little over 100 years ago.
Situated in what could be an old farmhouse from Denmark.

This is totally walkable from the center of town so long as it's not too hot out. It's the former house of two artists - the home itself is built in the historic tradition and includes an art gallery. Beautiful back garden and an out-building with a very cool model of old Solvang. There is a little gift shop with quality merchandise. Ask the docent questions and they are happy to talk with you. Ask one to show you how the front door mechanism works from the inside. A lovely visit.

To many, the food, wine, restaurants and bakeries of Solvang can be the highlight of their visit. But for me, this was clearly the highlight of our family’s trip.

History and art is very important in a culture. The museum is housed in a ‘historic hand-crafted structure’ styled to Denmark’s 18th century farmhouses.

The photos, artifacts and video depict the pioneering spirit of Danish-Americans. The gallery is spacious, and the surroundings just echo the colorful heritage of the Danish. The diorama was definitely a favorite of mine.

If you desire to know Solvang’s history and the heritage of Denmark, then this should be the first place to visit.
