"Marie Jensen" at Bedstemor's House
It will be Iben/Marie’s last performance at Bedstemor’s House for the season, as Iben will be returning to Denmark at the end of the month. The opportunity to interact with a historic character is an entertaining and enriching one, especially for children. Marie is always happy to answer questions and share stories. Bedstemor’s House, a 1908 immigrant-built home at 2015 College Street, is on the National Register of Historic Places and is managed by the Museum of Danish America. Typically, Bedstemor’s House is open daily through Labor Day from 1 to 4 p.m. without a historical interpreter. Admission is always free!
