The Nordic region shares similar culture beliefs and traditions. Our goal at the Nordic Heritage 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.
