In Trunks, Hands, and Hearts: What Norwegian Immigrants Brought to the United States

May 12, 2022 | 7:00 p.m. (CT)

Location: Online on Zoom

Vesterheim members – Join Vesterheim Chief Curator Laurann Gilbertson to explore the immigrant experience through stories associated with artifacts in Vesterheim’s collection. Between 1825 and 1980, nearly one million Norwegians left for new lives in America. We’ll consider the reasons for leaving, what they brought, and where they settled.

Vesterheim members Bob and Mary Lake are happy to share this event with other museum members.
