As part of the long term exhibits, there are five ethnic galleries, one for each country, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, as well a gallery, "Dream of America", describing Nordic emigration to the Pacific Northwest. There is also a temporary gallery space.
The museum is closed. A new location in the Ballard neighborhood is scheduled to open in May 2018.
