Last great exhibition you saw: “A couple weeks ago, we went to the annual Yulefest at the Seattle Nordic Heritage Museum. It was more of a winter holiday event than an exhibit: shopping for handmade Scandinavian goods, listening to cute old men playing folk songs, tasting a variety of Scandinavian pastries, plus Aebleskiver, brats, smorgasbord, and glogg. The museum itself has an exhibit of life-size dioramas representing 19th-century Scandinavian general stores, cafes, and houses filled with neat old artifacts, so there was an element of history as well. It was a really genuine experience, almost as if we traveled to a small town in Norway for an afternoon. The museum is by no means a highbrow institution, but that’s what we find most charming about it.”
