The Norwegian Laft Hus is an absolutely adorable and charming little place to learn about Norwegian history. It's filled with artifacts such as clothing, skis, calendars, cooking devices, and more. Each artifact is numbered, and you can read about it in a little guide booklet....More

A good little museum dedicated to the Norwegian pioneers who settled in and around the Red Deer area. The place shows how a typical Norwegian family would have lived a hundred or more years ago. Also a good place to buy a souvenir of Norway.
