Nordic Heritage Museum is at 2655 N.W. Market St. The museum focuses on Nordic cultural contributions to life in the Pacific Northwest. The Dream of America exhibit traces the journey of early 20th-century Nordic immigrants to America and the Pacific Northwest using photographs, artifacts and sound. Eight additional galleries focus on the impact of Nordic immigration on the fishing and lumber industries, as well as the heritage of each of the five Nordic countries: Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. An art gallery hosts changing exhibits by contemporary Nordic and Nordic-American artists.
