Make a special gift

We have made the difficult decision to close the National Nordic Museum as of Saturday, March 14, and plan to remain closed until such time as it is safe to reopen. We will keep you informed through regular updates. And we are hopeful that we will be able to welcome you back to the Museum soon to celebrate and share all the offerings of the National Nordic Museum.

Please explore our online offerings for now.

Julefest cookies at Goodies2Go

What's Christmas or afternoon coffee without cookies? These Princess Gems first appeared at the Museum's cookbook, Tasty Traditions, courtesy of Marianne Livingstone and Carina Halgren. Today Sharon Lucas and Gail Blaine, co-chair of Goodies2Go, recommend this recipe. The amazing volunteers of Goodies2Go baked this and other Nordic favorites to stock their famous table of treats at Julefest.

This traditional cookie makes a lovely addition to your fika at any time of the year.

The National Nordic Museum shares Nordic culture with people of all ages and backgrounds by exhibiting art and objects, preserving collections, providing educational and cultural experiences, and serving as a community gathering place.
