  • 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 far...  more »
  • 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....  more »

  • In short: Fantastic! I'm the kind of person who can spend hours at a museum, so it was good that we only had an hour and a half before it closed. :) Linda was our very knowledgeable and enthusiastic docent. She was thoughtful about her answers to my questions. Solvang is an interesting town, proud of their Danish roots. I recommend that everyone visiting the area start their trip at Elverhøj Museum. It is free, but I was glad to pay the $5 suggested donation.
  • Absolutely the perfect place to come to get some real history on the Danish town. The house was hand built by one of the original families and then donated to the city. The craftsmanship and rotating gallery are amazing. It's free of charge and the perfect little gem of history we were looking for.
  • Great museum showcasing Danish contributions to the area. It really does a great job showing you how life was like in the early 1900s. The curators also have different little themes they do throughout the year so check out their website for further information. Go over to the museum when in Solvang, it really is fun.
  • We all love this place. Highly recommending all my friends to come! The curator lady is super nice and instructional, and she treated our kids nicely with gift and kept them busy. The museum displays how early Danish immigrants started the town and lived their quiet lives here. The small gift shop carries the right things for kids like educational toys and books. The gardens and flowers are so beautiful. We will definitely come back again.
  • Great place to see Solvang's Danish history. Exhibits are well designed, and there is always something new to see.
