Seattle’s National Nordic Museum has 80,000 objects in its collection and a bunch of additional items on loan. During our latest trip to Ballard, Leslie Anderson, the museum’s director of collections, gave us a museum tour. We look at five key things, including a century-old sauna, a swan made of over 300 mayonnaise buckets (on display through the end of the year), and the complete contents of a Viking grave.
