The Scandinavian Heritage Museum located in Minot, North Dakota, features several Nordic homes, churches, and a small museum. The buildings, originally built in Norway, then rebuilt in Minot, are open to the public during the summer months.

During the winter, you can visit the gift shop and talk to staff who are eager to answer any questions you may have.

The museum is really a gem in the middle of the tiny town of Minot. There isn’t much else to do and the park is about a $7 taxi ride from the airport. I wouldn’t bother getting a rental car, the distances between everything are cheap enough to get by with walking or cab fare. You can check out some of the pictures I took in the freezing cold, including the one on the left of a 30ft tall Dala horse.
