  • 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.
  • This was such a cute museum. A lot of history. A lot of stuff to read and learn about. The ladies that work here are beyond nice. Everyone who visits Solvang should visit here.
  • This was a very informative and enjoyable visit. I would recommend it to anyone who visits Solvang and wants to learn about its history.
  • This is a small museum with a portion dedicated to the arts. Also there is an area that educates visitors about the Viking life and their alphabet. The museum was once a house and rooms depict the life of early Danish settlers to California. It is a must see and a donation of $5 is requested.
  • Very interesting & informative. Great learning the history about Solvang. I always find the early years heart warming.
