heritage center in Moorhead

The Heritage Hjemkomst Interpretive Center in Moorhead, Minnesota houses a replica Viking ship built to full scale based on ruins discovered in Norway.  Hjemkomst means Homecoming.  The ship was built in the 1970's and launched into Lake Superior in 1980.  The ship made its voyage to Norway landing in Bergen and then sailing on to Oslo.  It now has a permanent home here at the center.  Come and see the ship and all of the rest of the wonderful displays of Norwegian history and culture at the interpretive center on the banks of the Red River.
