Connecting with contemporary Norway

Norway House connects the United States with contemporary Norway

through art, business, and culture. 


As the window to contemporary Norway, Norway House is a non-profit organization that partners with businesses, organizations, and the community to celebrate a shared heritage. Norway House is a destination for the community with over 40,000 visitors annually.

Through our programs—which include the Galleri at Norway House, Minnesota Peace Initiative, and the Edvard Grieg Society of Minnesota—you can experience contemporary art, design, and music. Visitors can engage in discussion about important topics that share links to Norway and the global community.

The Hopperstad Stavkirke from Seven Ways to Trick a Troll by Heather Vick

It's that time of the year again! Norway House in Minneapolis recreates the Twin Cities out of gingerbread through community contributions from first-time to professional gingerbread bakers. This year we are featuring over 80 structures including a gorgeous mosque, Finnish village in honor of Finland 100, and a Stav church from the children's book "7 Ways To Trick A Troll."
