Nordic Museum
Gå till (Visit) Scandinavia

Friday November 2, 2018

The new Nordic Museum in Ballard is home tomore than 77,000 items including household and occupational objects, furniture, clothing and textiles, fine and decorative art brought here or produced by immigrants from Scandinavia.   Our docent-led tour provides an overview of the Nordic Journeys which expands the Museum’s classic immigration story to include a broader understanding of Nordic life and culture as it has evolved over the last twelve thousand years.  After the tour, we’ll have plenty of time to explore the museum including the special exhibition The Vikings Begin.   We’ll uncover the story of the Vikings of early Scandinavia through original artifacts, reconstructions, and archaeological discoveries from early Viking age society. Our trip includes a delicious meal at Portage Bay Café.  Famous for their Breakfast Bar, they serve breakfast and lunch entrees all day so you’ll have lots of fresh, local food to choose from.  The Café is a short, easy stroll from the Museum.
