  • Beautiful architecture surrounds this modern tribute to our local Nordic heritage. The structure is so thoughtfully designed with ample natural light that interacts with the space and the artifacts it contains, like the gorgeous glass birds soaring above you. The exhibits themselves are nicely curated and focus on each Nordic country (Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Norway). The cafe and gift shop on the first floor also do a nice job of giving guests a taste of a Scandinavia. Worth any visit!
  • This museum is definitely worth a visit! Located in northern Seattle, it is a beautiful combination of architecture and history. The building itself is a work of art, and the exhibits shed a light on Nordic history and the history of the Nordic people in America. They also have a temporary exhibit space (that happened to be housing a viking exhibit at the time of my visit) and a cafe that serves snacks and coffee beverages. The cold brew was fantastic after roaming the museum.
