Mission Statement

The National Nordic Museum is an internationally recognized museum and cultural center where people of all backgrounds are welcomed to be inspired by the values, traditions, art, and spirit of the Nordic peoples. Through the history we illuminate, the stories we tell, the connections we make, and the values we promote, we inspire our visitors to create a more vibrant, more just, more sustainable world. Our values are Openness, Sustainability, Social Justice and Innovation. These shared Nordic values and perspectives serve as guiding principles for the core exhibition experience, tracing Nordic themes of connection to nature, sustainability, social justice, and innovation from the earliest anthropological records through contemporary Nordic society.


The National Nordic Museum, now located in the heart of the historic Ballard neighborhood, re-opened it's doors to the public in May 2018. Enthusiastic members and volunteers have transformed this historic structure into a museum, cultural center and meeting place for the Nordic community that links the past, present and future. The Museum is the largest ethnic museum in the Pacific Northwest and the only museum in North America to equally represent the peoples of all Nordic countries. Our calendar is filled with daily activities reflecting the rich legacy of Scandinavian traditions and influences in our community. In exchange for your support we promise you a tremendously rewarding and engaging experience. When you become a volunteer, you will become a partner in the effort to preserve a peoples heritage, perhaps your own!
