There's Something Special Baking at Norway House

For the fourth year in a row, Norway House is building

the Twin Cities out of gingerbread in our Galleri!


Gingerbread Wonderland is a Delicious community Display

Gingerbread (or in Norwegian, pepperkake) is a quintessential feature of the Norwegian holiday season. You will find gingerbread cookies, ornaments, and houses everywhere -- in offices, stores, homes, and schools. Some towns and cities in Norway even go so far as to build replicas of their city out of gingerbread!

Together with families, friends, and neighbors, young and old, Norway House will be creating Gingerbread Wonderland - Twin Cities in our Galleri. You will find familiar buildings and landmarks -- both contemporary and historical -- created by everyone from professional bakers to first-time gingerbread enthusiasts. We invite anyone who is interested -- regardless of their gingerbread baking level -- to participate in this local holiday tradition by bringing in a gingerbread house or building to put on display.

Starting on November 20, 2018 (through January 6, 2019), Gingerbread Wonderland at Norway House is open to visitors! Enjoy holiday treats at Also Ingebretsen's and surround yourself in all thing gingerbread.

Admission is $5 for adult and children older than 12. Norway House members and children 12 and under receive free admission-- as well as for anyone who has contributed a house, building, or structure to the display.
