Experience history and see contemporary art at the Nordic Heritage Museum, the hub of the Nordic American community in Seattle. We host exhibitions, programs, and events that celebrate Nordic values including sustainability, innovation, and family. Dedicated to collecting, preserving, and educating since its founding in 1980, the Nordic Heritage Museum is the only museum in the United States to honor the legacy of immigrants from the five Nordic countries: Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden. The Nordic Heritage Museum shares 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.
