The Danish Immigration Museum: in 1979, two professors from Dana College proposed to the Dana College Board of Regents that a museum dedicated to the preservation of Danish immigrant heritage should be created. This proposal was met with approval, and a year later the Danish American Heritage Society (DAHS) was asked to form an exploratory committee. In 1983, the exploratory committee chose to locate the museum in the Danish Villages of Elk Horn and Kimballton, Iowa. The board was officially incorporated in May and in July the Elk Horn Lutheran Church donated 20 acres for the museum site. The museum began accepting donations to its collection and operated out of a building on Elk Horns main street for several years. The groundbreaking ceremony for the museums current building occurred in 1988, but the museum building did not open to the public until June 1994.

TESS are proud to be supplying our Evolution system to the museum as they seek to expand their temporary exhibition programme.
