Zoom Into The Museum

Zoom Into The Museum

Do you want to feel like you are at the National Nordic Museum, even while working from home? Or maybe you would like a desktop background refresh? The Museum is delighted to share these custom Museum-themed Zoom and desktop wallpapers, free for you to use. You'll find images from the galleries, the Museum exterior, details, and more—just click this link to view and download all the different options. 

Besides our favorite gallery shots and a (glass) bird's eye view of the Museum's Fjord Hall, there's some hidden delights normally closed to the public. If you are researching your family or Nordic heritage in the Pacific Northwest, you could be sitting in our Cultural Resource Center, a favorite spot of visiting scholars. Or hang out inside the Pacific Northwest's oldest working sauna.

Not sure how to set your Zoom background? Zoom's handy guide on customized backgrounds is here. We cannot wait to see you in the real Museum soon, but until then we look forward to seeing you on Zoom, Skype, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and beyond! 

If you would like to take a  picture of yourself with these Zoom backgrounds, we'd love to share it. Just tag @nordicmuseum on Facebook or Instagram, or @thenordicmuseum on Twitter. Share your favorite memories of Museum visits the same way.


All backgrounds are provided free of charge. If you'd like to support the Museum, please considered becoming a Member, renewing your Membership, or making a Special Gift.
