  • Love this museum for its beauty, collection, love and sacrifice of people.. If you ever get a chance don't miss to visit this incredible museum. The museum depicts the journey of 5nordic country people to USA. I was clueless about this incredible history until I made a visit here. Very well presented and helpful volunteers. Hard to find this place. But they said, they are goign to relocate it close to the Ballard market place. They also have a beautiful store, but it's bit expensive.
  • Great little museum. I learned a lot about Nordic emagration to America
  • Good small museum hidden in the Ballard neighborhood. Some kid-friendly activities on some Thursdays, nice little playground, and interesting Scandinavian exhibits. Has always been uncrowded during the week.
  • Visit it here while you can. They'll be moving from their cozy neighborhood setting to Market Ave in Ballard soon. It's a small but nice museum with regular events that draw pretty big crowds and are usually a lot of fun for families.
  • If you live in Ballard and you like local history, you definitely need to check this museum out. You can walk through it and see the main displays in about 2 hours, or you can take longer and see more details.
