The Oil Capital of North Dakota

The Norseman Museum is proud to be the curator and historian of Tioga, North Dakota. We opened up the museum in an old church on the corner of 2nd and Welo Street in 1999. In 2019 the Norseman Museum was relocated to a brand new building located between the Tioga Police Department and Tioga City Hall just a few hundred feet from the original museum.

Started in 1998

About the Museum

The Norseman Museum is set up in 7 main sections: Churches, Farming and Ranching, Schools, Military, Native Americans, Oil and Gas, and the Railroad. We also have smaller displays  with rotating exhibits 

over 400,000 artifacts
