In preparation for their upcoming move, the Nordic Heritage Museum is slowly closing down some of their galleries in order to pack them up. This Saturday, June 24 from 10am to 5pm will be the last opportunity to see the National Heritage Galleries before they reopen in the new museum next year. The event is free and open to the public.
Between 2 and 4pm, the museum will host tours of the galleries; guests can pick up a copy of “Voices in Ballard” while supplies last. According to the event information, the closing of the galleries for the move is an important marker in the museum’s history, so they’ll be filming the open house.
There will be a closing reception from 4-5pm with light refreshments and a brief program on the history of the museum and community effort to create the galleries. To attend the free reception, RSVP here, or by calling the museum: (206) 789-5707 x26.
