Seattle's Nordic Museum is an internationally recognized museum and cultural center that works to share the Nordic culture with people of all ages and backgrounds by exhibiting art and objects, preserving collections, providing educational and cultural experiences, and serving as a community gathering place.
This museum, the largest dedicated to Nordic heritage in the United States, honors immigrants from 5 countries: Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, and Iceland. During your visit, you can see a number of rotating exhibits covering these areas and telling the stories of their culture, such as the current exhibits Bamse! and Studio 54.
Save plenty of time to explore the permanent exhibit, Nordic Journeys, which displays over 100 artifacts from the 5 countries, some dating up to 4,000 years old. See things such as Viking-era stones and swords and various religious relics. Before you go grab a bite to eat at the onsite Freya Cafe, which serves up classic Nordic dishes such as smorgasbord and danish dogs.
