AAA Editor Notes
Museum of Danish America is at 2212 Washington St. Three levels of exhibits with a collection of nearly 40,000 artifacts and photographs housed in a museum and in a curatorial center with a green roof planted with native grasses and flowers depict Danish life throughout America. Notable is a piano donated by Victor Borge. A LEGO play area is available for children. The roof can be explored via a walkway and informational signage.

An 1890s homesteader's cabin is on the grounds. Jens Jensen Prairie Landscape Park, a 30-acre prairie restoration, offers a .6-mile paved pedestrian path and Danish-designed outdoor fitness equipment. The path leads to Bedstemor's House, a restored 1908 Danish immigrant home. A genealogy center is located around the corner less than a mile away at 4210 Main St.

Picnicking is permitted.
