The new Nordic Heritage Museum is scheduled to open next year in Ballard. With the bigger, 57,000-square-foot structure, the museum will be able to showcase a broader range of the Nordic experience.

The museum broke ground last July after 13 years of fundraising for the building. The museum now is housed in a 1907 building rented from the Seattle School District 5
