So there's a big tent and inside is a hand made replica of a Viking ship that some other guys sailed to Europe to prove it could be done I suspect. The replica is really something to behold. If you are in the area it is worth a visit. They also have a very comprehensive presentation and museum about the ship. My take away; on their voyage the guys went to the bathroom in five gallon plastic buckets on deck. I imagine just like true Vikings.

Coming to Hjemkomst is an every time we are in Fargo/Moorhead must do! The boys were older this year (12,10 and 6) and the inspirational story of Robert Asp building a Viking boat in the middle of the Midwest was not lost on them. All our lives are but a breath, and what we choose to do in that short breath of time, how we chose to live, those people we come in contact with, those dreams we dare to follow, are the ways in which we bring significance to even the short time we are here. Truly inspiring and heartwarming.

Cool place. I liked the ship and the stave church. The rest was a little boring to me. It's not really worth the $10 entry fee. That pretty steep. $5 would have been reasonable for this exhibit.

To most visitors it's about the ship. And that's cool enough. Locals also know it as the venue for their Scandinavian, German, Celtic and Pangia festivals. It is not unusual for them host special exhibits and produce well done productions on local subjects. Not being a native to the area I appreciate the hostorical insight.
