Came to see the gingerbread house exhibit, bring your kids and kids at heart! I couldn't believe how intricate and detailed you could make a gingerbread house, castle, lighthouse, cathedral e.t.c until I came here. Absolutely stunning. Don't miss it, especially if you're just passing Franklin and Chicago. There's free parking and a cafe too!

A wonderful Norwegian gem in Minneapolis. The exhibits are adorable with the cutest baked goods. I think my favorites are the gingerbread houses over Christmas. The waffles and glog are special treats for anyone. The lingonberry waffle is the hands down favorite.
