Iowa Baseball Museum of Norway
 
HOME
Our Museum tells the story of how baseball came to the little town of Norway, shortly after the Civil War, and culminated in twenty State High School Championships. Over the years, Norway produced prolific numbers of college and semi pro players, seventeen Minor Leaguers, and four Major Leaguers.   Our building was built in 1905, to be the Benton County Savings Bank by Jake Kimm, a baseball player; one hundred years later, it was remodeled entirely by former Norway baseball players, to be our museum. In 2006, a full length motion picture, the Final Season was filmed in our town. It tells the story of Norway’s 20th, and final Championship, as our High School would be closed the next year. Our museum is a non-profit, developed and managed by local volunteers... yes, the love affair between Norway and Baseball continues to this very day, because: “Norway is Baseball... Baseball is Norway”  There is NO Admission Fee to visit our Museums, we ask only that you consider a free-will donation.       Enjoy your trip to Norway’s ”Field of Dreams” Normal Hours: Tuesday, Thursday & Saturday 1-3 pm Winter Hours - by Appointment Only Call: Shona 319-721-6288 or Gary 319-981-7689 Take a quick Video Tour of the Museum
