Even in Europe, you'd be hard pressed to find a museum that celebrates and explores the legacies of all five Nordic Countries - Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. But the museum does more than just talk about their culture in the five galleries that it has dedicated respectively to each one of the countries.. It explores the legacies that immigrants from these countries have brought to USA in an exhibit called 'Dream of America'. Additionally, it also explores traditional old country Nordic professions and cultures of fishing, logging and folk art.

Since the museum has been active since 1980, there have been a lot of temporary exhibitions over time, and the museum has just gotten better at them. Keep yourself updatd on upcoming events on the attraction website. The museum also organises educational workshops, facilitated by its two well stocked libraries.

  • I can't believe it took me so long to visit this place. What a fantastic museum. I am sad they are having to move out of the old school house, which has such amazing character, but am glad the district is going to make use of it, AND that the NHM is going to get their own brand new location on Market Street! How exciting!

  • Love the exhibits and the old school house feel, I will miss it when they move next year! But I am excited for the new building. Highly recommend taking classes here. It is fun, educational, and multi-generational.

  • A very impressive museum. Great attention to detail makes the experience fun as well as educational. Museum shop is also well done.

  • Vast collection of artifacts, unique and interesting story telling with immersive, historically-inspired environments. Step onto (and off of) a transatlantic ship into street scales of early America, view heritage themed villages in Scandinavia, and more! The new venue will provide an updated look with its own unique story, but will lose some of the theatrical charm now on display. Go visit while you can!

  • Moving to a new location. A little sad to say goodbye, grew up going to this place. Great place! New museum will be even better, I'm sure.
