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.
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.
Not every neighborhood has a mead hall. But ours does! Skål Beer Hall is a cheerful, modern take on a gathering place for Nordic friends and family in Ballard. As the days gets shorter and Christmas draws closer, the bar is serving up Gløgg based on owner Adam McQueen's family recipe.
If you not close enough to visit Skål , you can still make Gløgg for your guests and any passing tomte.
