    Definitely does as its name implies. Also a good place to walk around. Limited parking.

    Very cool place for all of the family. Lots of information about Scandinavian history, well kept, and 7 Pokemon stops fun for all.

    What a wealth of knowledge! And everyone is eager to share and answer questions, a majority of the focus is on Norway and my only wish is that there was a younger generation as enthusiastic as this.

    I enjoy coming to the Scandinavian Heritage Park, it's full of information, history and most likely of you go into the visitors center they give you information of all the events in town. The park is also a Pokémon spot which you can walk the park several times to get those pokeballs and new Pokémon like Lynx, Gastly, Weezly and others.
