A visit to Ballard's Nordic Museum is a real treat. For years it was hidden away in an old, closed school building. 

Not now, the new building is a spectacular place. It is located on at 2665 NW Market Street in Seattle's Ballard neighborhood.

The Nordic Museum shares Nordic culture with people of all ages and backgrounds. It provides educational and cultural experiences, and serves as a community gathering place.


The museum features Nordic Journeys, an interactive, immersive core exhibition. On the first floor there is a dedicated flexible gallery space for visiting exhibitions.

Admission; Adults $15, Seniors $12, Students $10, and children 0-4 free. Limited parking $2.
