The new Chloe Ellefson Historic Sites Mystery, Heritage of Darkness, by Kathleen Ernst, is set at Vesterheim! To celebrate its publication, Vesterheim is offering a Chloe's World Tour from 10:00 a.m. - noon. The tour will take readers through the museum, highlighting the locations featured in Heritage of Darkness. Stops will include the Norwegian House, the rosemaling and woodworking exhibit galleries, the vault, and the Valdres House in the Open-Air Division. The tour also includes a stop at one of the museum’s collections storage facilities for a peek at some hidden treasures. The tour will begin in the lobby of the Main Building. Please gather at 9:50 a.m. Since the tour will include discussion of major plot points, guests are encouraged to read Heritage of Darkness in advance.
