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 farmhouse from Denmark.

Tucked away in a residential area of downtown Solvang - don't miss a visit to this really beautiful museum packed with local history and current exhibits.

A cute little museum with interesting art and artifacts. Learn about the history of Solvang and understand how the community has grown and changed. A great experience, and a nice quick stop away from the touristy hub. Well worth the visit.
