and events. Dedicated to collecting, preserving, and educating since its founding
in 1980, the Nordic Heritage Museum is the only museum in the United States to honor
the legacy of immigrants from the five Nordic countries: Denmark, Finland, Iceland,
Norway and Sweden.

and Hans Wegner (Y-chair pictured to right). Wegner is featured with his most popular designs including the Round Chair, later known simply as “the Chair” after it gained
