  • My mom is danish and my wife and I went with my brother and his wife. It was a great experience. Many items which brought back wonderful memories. The host was very helpful.  more »
  • Interactive activities for young kids. Beautiful landscaping. Interesting historical materials. Be sure to visit all 3 floors.  more »
  • Fun unplanned stop while driving from Des Moines to Omaha. Exhibits are small but interesting. Saw a sign that said you can make an appointment with someone to help you learn about your Danish genealogy. Young kids probably won't be interested in much besides the Lego area.
  • This was such a cool museum, and an unexpected pocket of joy on our trip. The workers were very kind and the display on Nordic cuisine was awesome.
