Built by Robert Asp, in 1982 the ship sailed more than 6,100 miles from Duluth to Bergen, Norway, and back. Photographs and a 28-minute film recount the voyage. Also on the grounds is a full-scale replica of the Hopperstad Stave Church in Vik, Norway. The 12th-century stave church is decorated with both Viking and Christian motifs.</br>Traveling exhibits are presented in Heritage Hall. The Historical and Cultural Society of Clay County museum houses local history displays and temporary exhibits.</br></br>
