  • I happen to live in Scandinavia and I always felt that the history of Scandinavian immigration to America was never really well told here. This museum rectifies that very well with a ton of items, pho...  more »
  • Such an important place to visit. Ballard is historically represented here. The new building not open as of Oct. 2017 will be incredible. New spot on the water, just east of the locks. Large boats, lo...  more »
  • This is a lovely museum with life-alike exhibits of Scandinavians lifestyle after moving to the US. If you are interested in the subject, you definitely should visit.  more »

  • Very cool museum in Ballard. The staff was very helpful when we visited and our self directed tour was very fun. The exhibits highlight each of the countries and cultures. We especially loved the large boats on display
  • 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!
