This is an interesting museum and a short walk from downtown. We talked to a volunteer who was making lace, saw a kitchen with cabinets painted with flowers, saw other historical displays of Solvang.

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.
