A real Norwegian-American prairie village

The Western Norwegian Emigration Centre is an open-air museum of
buildings built by Norwegian-Americans in the USA and later moved to
Norway. Visit the Emigrant Church, the school, the doctor's office, a
residential house, town hall and prison. We tell the story of the great
Norwegian emigration to America, and about emigration, immigration, and
cultural encounters in our time.
