The Nordic Story


 

The Nordic region shares similar culture beliefs and traditions. Our goal at the Nordic Museum is to celebrate the values, art, and spirit of the Nordic peoples, while sharing these treasures with people of all backgrounds.

The Nordic region consists of five countries: Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden.
The word nordic is derived from the term norden, often used in Scandinavian languages, literally meaning “the northern lands." Scandinavia is sometimes used as a synonym for the Nordic countries, but that term more accurately refers to Denmark, Norway, and Sweden.

Our goal at the Nordic Museum is to celebrate the values, art, and spirit of
the Nordic peoples.

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.
