Wall of Honor
Many of the more than 360,000 Danish immigrants who have left their homeland for a new life in the United States are recognized on The Danish Immigrant Wall of Honor. Their stories contribute importantly to the growing repository of family histories at the Museum of Danish America and its Genealogy Center. The museum eloquently interprets these stories through its fascinating exhibits.

The Danish Immigrant Wall of Honor provides families and friends with a means of preserving the memory of those who immigrated to America from Denmark. Over 4,250 immigrants are recognized on this memory wall to date. Their stories and the stories of their families are now preserved forever in the archives of the museum and its Genealogy Center.

A complete index of the names appearing on the Wall of Honor plaques is now available . The list is current and updated through January 20, 2015. The immigrants' names are in alphabetical order.

You, too, can memorialize and register an immigrant by adding his or her name to the museum's Wall of Honor by making a tax deductible contribution of $250 per name.  You will be contributing to helping the Museum of Danish America continue the story of Danish immigration and the Danish-American experience.
