“Norway is Baseball...  Baseball is Norway”

Iowa Baseball Museum of Norway
Home Store News Photos About Links History Contact
Our museum tells the story of how baseball came to the little town of Norway shortly after the Civil War, and culminated in 20 State High School Championships; producing along the way, prolific numbers of college and semi pro players, seventeen Minor Leaguers, and four Major Leaguers.   Our building was constructed in 1905 by Norway baseball player, Jake Kimm, to be the Benton County Savings Bank.  One hundred years later, it would be remodeled entirely by former Norway ball players to be our museum. In 2006, the motion picture the Final Season was filmed in our town. It tells the story of Norway’s 20th, and final State Baseball Championship, as our high school was closed the next year. Our Museum is a non-profit and was developed, and is entirely managed, by local volunteers; demonstrating that the love affair between Norway and Baseball continues to this day.      No Admission - Free Will Donation or Membership  Enjoy your trip to Norway’s ”Field of Dreams” Normal Hours: Tuesday, Thursday & Saturday 1-4 pm Winter Hours - By Appointment Only Call: Shona 319-721-6288  /  Gary 319-981-7689 Take a Quick Video Tour
