Puget Sound Campus Center | Nordic Museum Tour @ The Nordic Museum
Nov 16 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Come join us for a guided tour with the help of Mithun Architects of The Nordic Museum, a museum dedicated to the heritage of Seattle’s Nordic immigrants, Danish, Finnish, Icelandic, Norwegian and Swedish Americans.

This is a great opportunity for students to get a behind-the-scenes tour of the design process and history of the building.

Designed by Mithun, the new museum 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 wraps the building exterior; inside, fjord walls are composed of faceted white planes evoking its glacial origins.

The museum opened to the public in 1980 in an old school building with minimal museum infrastructure. The new facility provides climate-controlled collection and exhibition space with expanded areas for teaching, events, and exhibitions. A more-active location and interactive experience aim to engage a new generation of visitors.

We will also be accepting donations for Seattle Recreative, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting creativity, community and environmental stewardship through creative reuse and art education.

Items accepted include paper, craft items, art supplies, office supplies, wood, metal etc.

Please look at their website to get a better idea of what you would like to donate!

The Tour should last about an hour and after we will meet in one of the classrooms at the museum to have a raffle, mentor moment, and some snacks.

Hope to see you there!

During regular museum hours, parking is limited but available for museum visitors. It begins at $2 (for two hours), with $1/hr for any additional hours.
