OPEN HOURS - Closed for Summer - See You in September!

The Scandinavian Cultural Center’s Open Hours and all programming have been cancelled through 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, in order to comply with  PLU guidelines and Washington State phased reopening guidelines. We plan to open full programming in September 2021. Thank you so much for all your support! We miss you all very much!

Welcome to the Scandinavian Cultural Center at PLU!

The mission of the Scandinavian Cultural Center at Pacific Lutheran University is “to engage Nordic and Nordic-American heritage and highlight customs, traditions, and contemporary societies with understanding towards other cultures.”

The Center is located at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma Washington, in recognition of the University’s Nordic heritage. We are open Tuesdays and Wednesdays 11am-3pm and Sundays 1-4pm during the school year. We are currently closed for summer May 26 – Sept. 7th

We also welcome new members as a great way to stay up to date with our events and to become involved in our programming.
