  • Volunteer run museum showcasing Nordic Heritage as it pertains to immigrants to th e Seattle area. Very pleasant volunteers manning front desk. Lots of artifacts divided by countries. Interesting. 
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • More than a museum, it's a cultural center with all sorts of educational and entertaining events. The handicrafts on exhibit are exquisite and the historic exhibits give a good look into the history of the people who first settled in Ballard. They've just broken ground on a new building a mile or two to the south, where they will have more and better space for everything they do.
  • 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.
  • They are a fantastic museum keeping the history of Nordic cultural traditions alive and well. They just hosted their first Nordic Food Conference which was a total hit, headlined with Magnus Nilsson.
