Helsinki — another great city to visit.  I met with colleagues at the National Museum and was toured through a great museum with fascinating exhibitry.  I was also fortunate to visit the Kiasma Museum.

On to Oslo!

Great first day in Oslo: We reviewed objects from the Folke Museum’s collection and I was also lucky to get a special tour of Arcus-Gruppen, the home of Linie Aquavit.

On to Stockholm!

After great meetings at the National Museum of Iceland, the Nordic House in Reykjavik, and the National Museum of Denmark, we also had the opportunity to meet with The A.P. Møller and Chastine Mc-Kinney Møller Foundation in Copenhagen. They are all willing to cooperate and are excited about our new museum project.

We will spend the three next days in Stockholm. I am looking forward to meeting with the Nordiska Museum (in photo) and the National Historical Museum to begin negotiations for object loans in time for the new museum’s opening in January, 2018.
