Key stakeholders including Museum members and Capital Campaign donors came together this summer to hear about our progress in the campaign for a new, permanent home on Market Street. Presentations included information about fundraising activities and plans for the new facility.
The current plan features 57,000 sq. ft. of new purpose-built construction, which will include interactive and immersive core exhibitions, dedicated areas for classrooms and a craft studio, and a state-of-the art auditorium - ideal for presentations and performances. Temporary exhibitions will be presented in a dynamic 3,700 sq. ft. gallery, designed to accommodate world-class exhibitions from the national galleries of the Nordic countries. An additional 2,500 sq. ft. of climate-controlled storage will allow for appropriate stewardship of our important and expanding collection of art and objects.
Come and be inspired by the values, traditions, art,
and spirit of the Nordic peoples.
