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 went to the Nordic Museum for their special exhibit 'The Vikings Begin'. It was $20 including all the exhibits ($15 of you're a student). The museum itself was pretty and the parking fee is reasonable. They also have a mini restaurant inside. All in all, it was nice to know more about the Nordic countries. Definitely check it out if you have time!

  • Lots of open space, there could had been more exhibitions at the same time. The current Viking exhibition was interesting. Anticipate to spend between three to four hours. The general admission was 20 dollars per adult, which is at the higher price tag. If less the Nordic Museum would receive five stars.

  • Really enjoyed the Viking exhibition but hoped there were more artifacts, its a lot of reading, which is great too! Just not what I expected. Happy to have had the chance to learn about Nordic culture. Please note if you're coming for this "special" exhibition on the free Thursday, it is still a $5 fee.

  • The mysticism, social structure and simple style of the Nordic countries, their people, architecture, history and food is simply endearing - it makes you wonder where the rest of the world went wrong. A great collection of all elements of everything that has contributed to their current state. Highly recommend especially grabbing a plunge coffee at the cafe downstairs

  • A super fun place to visit with the family. From my 6 year old son to my 70 year old mother, we all found something that interested us! We even became members.
