Nordic Heritage Museum

Visit a place where history comes alive and contemporary artists and community activities are celebrated with vibrant exhibits and events. 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.

Discover colorful textiles, cherished china, books and Bibles, woodworking tools, photographs and a myriad of other treasures brought from the Old Country to enrich life in a new land. Gathered in the Museum's five ethnic galleries, one for each country, they illustrate the differences and bonds linking Scandinavian people in the Pacific Northwest and applaud their achievements.
