Whether you're a quarter Scandinavian, interested in Norse or regional history, or even just into the show Vikings, the Hjemkomst is definitely a worthwhile endeavor. Their biggest draws are the many regional culture and heritage celebrations along with, of course, the full scale viking ship...More
We enjoyed the Viking ship and video. The video is a half an hr and worth your time. The video gives a lot more insight into creating the ship, getting it ready for sailing and the voyage. We also enjoyed the Stave church. I recommend...More
We didn't have a lot of time to spend here, but really enjoyed the details. The church and the viking ship are each magnificent. Do take the time to view the photo gallery in the lower level of the museum.
1 star for the WWI exhibit - I've been to hundreds of historical museums and sites throughout the US - but I've never been to one that editorialized and that tried to push a point of view as much as this one... It's like they...More

This is a great museum that highlights the "Hjemkomst Viking Heritage" ship built in Moorhead, MN by a Viking descendant and ultimately sailed to Norway. It was then returned to the USA. A replica of the "The Hopperstad Stave Church", is also on the grounds....More
The museum name maybe tricky to say, but everything else is great. It’s $10 per adult to enter and there is ample free parking. The staff were friendly. After you pass the gift shop, the first thing you see is the huge replica Viking boat...More
