National Heritage Galleries Closing Celebration


National Heritage Galleries Closing Celebration

10 - 5pm

On Saturday, June 24, we will be closing our third floor National Heritage Galleries in preparation for our move to the New Nordic Museum. Come and join us in honor of our past and in celebration of the future!

Open House: 10am-4pm

Between 2pm-4pm, volunteer representatives from the National Heritage Galleries will be stationed to provide tours and information on the development of these community exhibition spaces. Guests can pick up a complimentary copy of the “Voices of Ballard,” while supplies last. The closing of these galleries for our move is an important marker in Museum history, and we will be documenting this transitional moment in video. This event is free. 


Closing Reception: 4-5 pm

Museum Members and volunteers are invited to join us for a closing reception with light refreshments and a brief program on the history of the Museum and the community effort to create the National Heritage Galleries experience. If you wish to attend this reception, RSVP here, or by calling the Museum: (206) 789-5707 x26.  This event is free.
