Share the Nordic Spirit!
The new museum design is organized around a linear “fjord” that weaves together stories of homeland and the Nordic American experience. Bridges crossing the fjord intensify the experience of migration, connecting Nordic and Nordic American exhibits. A vertically-striated zinc skin will wrap the building exterior; inside, fjord walls will be composed of faceted white planes evoking its glacial origins. Along with the core exhibition galleries, active social areas - cafe, store, auditorium and classrooms - will expand the Museum’s capabilities and audiences.
Come and be inspired by the values, traditions, art,
and spirit of the Nordic peoples.
