What we're about

This is a group for any Norwegians, Norwegian-Americans and all other enthusiasts who would like to meet new people who are interested in sharing Norwegian and other Scandinavian heritage! We are the House of Norway organization at Balboa Park- International Cottages. When you join this meet up group you are not automatically a member of the House of Norway, but are invited to join in all of our events and encouraged to join the House of Norway. We aim to enjoy preserving the colorful history and rich culture of the customs and traditions of the “Land of the Midnight Sun". Check out our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/houseofnorway/

Open House at the House of Norway

House of Norway in Balboa Park

Every Saturday (with very few exceptions) the House of Norway opens its cottage in Balboa Park to welcome visitors to share typical Norwegian treats and to discuss Norwegian culture and history.

Bring the kids to visit with Elsa, Anna, Kristoff, Sven, and Olof from Frozen. See if you can find the four trolls who will undoubtedly spot of our visitors first. Look for the Hardanger fiddler on display in the cottage, and ask the hosts to explain how it differs from a violin.

Come see us whenever you can. And if you have Norwegian ancestors, consider joining the House of Norway.
