DECORAH, Iowa —Stop by Vesterheim, the national Norwegian-American museum and heritage center, for Free First Thursday, October 3, and visit the “Trunk Room.”

Back by popular demand, the “Trunk Room” is open storage in the museum’s Main Building and it’s full of amazing trunks, carved furniture, historic rifles, and more. “If you missed it, come back to see it, and if you haven’t seen it, come and check it out,” Martha Griesheimer, Vesterheim’s Free First Thursday Coordinator, said.

The museum is open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. with free admission sponsored by Decorah Bank and Trust Company and daily tours of the buildings in the museum’s Open Air Division will be at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.
