“Norway is Baseball...  Baseball is Norway”

Iowa Baseball Museum of Norway

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 contractor, and Norway baseball player, Jake Kimm, to be the Benton County Savings Bank.  One hundred years later, it would be remodeled entirely by former Norway baseball players to be our museum. The Final Season was filmed in our town in 2006. The movie tells the story of our 20th, and final State Baseball Championship, as our high school closed the next year. The Iowa Baseball Museum of Norway is a non-profit, wholly developed and entirely managed by local volunteers, which demonstrates that the love affair between Norway and Baseball, continues to this day.  Enjoy your trip to Norways ”Field of Dreams”
