Welcome to Norskedalen

In this season of protecting visitors, members, volunteers and staff from the pandemic, sharing all that is at Norskedalen while accommodating current parameters can be challenging.  Please read the following points carefully, as they will change to follow pandemic requirements.

*************************************************************************************************

Guided tours of the Homestead will resume in early May.  As the number of people per tour guide will be limited, advance reservations will be needed.  While self-guided tours are always available, two day advance reservations are needed for a guided tour; admission will be required at the time that the reservation is made.

*************************************************************************************************

The Visitors’ Center IS open, including the gift shop.  We are operating at limited capacity in the Visitors’ Center and welcome your patience as you may need to wait for guests to exit before you enter the building.

*************************************************************************************************

Masks are required on guided tours and inside any building.  We ask that you observe social distancing when meeting other groups at any point outside.

*************************************************************************************************

Operating hours may be adjusted based on La Crosse County Health Advisories.

*************************************************************************************************

Please call us at 608-452-3424 for details, questions or reservations.

Thank you!
