“We at Vesterheim are excited about what this working relationship will achieve to shape the museum and its facilities for the next generation of visitors,” Chris Johnson, Vesterheim’s President/CEO said. “As the process moves forward, you can expect updates as plans develop.”
With world-class exhibitions and 12 historic buildings in scenic Decorah, Iowa, Vesterheim, the national Norwegian-American museum and heritage center, showcases the best in historic and contemporary Norwegian folk and fine arts, and explores the American immigrant experience. This national treasure is also a center for folk-art education, offering a wide variety of classes in authentic Norwegian folk art every year.
