Nestled along Seattle's working waterfront is a unique destination that highlights the, "history and culture of the entire Nordic region." We are talking about the National Nordic Museum, and it always offers something new to discover. Here is some of what you can enjoy near our Redmond apartments:
A permanent exhibition, Nordic Journeys takes visitors on a fun adventure that spans 12,000 years and 1.3 million square miles. It also covers the five Nordic countries. Along the way, you'll learn about different cultures and follow in the footsteps of those who immigrated to North America. Objects on display include the contents of a Viking's grave, traditional home items, and utilitarian axes.
The museum's permanent collection features more than 80,000 items from Nordic immigrants. They date between 1840 and today. Highlights include photographs, manuscripts, and paintings by renowned Danish-American Dines Carlsen. In addition, the collection also contains instruments and audio and video recordings that document Nordic dance and folk music.
Before leaving, stop by the National Nordic Museum Store. It features unique items inspired by Nordic living design trends that have become popular in the United States. The varied collection includes Swedish dishcloths, Nordic craft kits, and Dale of Norway Alvoy hats. The store is open Tuesday through Sunday between 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. To save time, shop online and pick up your order during business hours. Museum members receive exclusive weekly coupons and ten percent off all purchases.
