Seattle’s Must-See Museum

Immerse yourself in 12,000 years of Nordic history

BY DON NICHOLS — Fall 2018

In Seattle, the Nordic Museum has reopened in a handsome $50 million building in Ballard, the neighborhood where many Scandinavian immigrants settled after they started arriving in the 1890s. The 57,000-square-foot museum covers 12,000 years of Nordic history and culture and will captivate you with its exhibits and wide array of artifacts, including an intricately carved bridal chest from Denmark (circa 1644) and a two-man dory used for halibut fishing in Puget Sound in the early 1900s. 206-789-5707; nordicmuseum.org
