The Scandinavian Cultural Center is dedicated to increasing and sharing knowledge of Scandinavian history and culture with the wider community of the Tacoma and South Puget Sound area. We actively engage with the history and culture of Scandinavia through special events, exhibitions, and programs, in partnership with the many Scandinavian heritage organizations in the area, PLU faculty, and students.

The Center is located at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma Washington, in recognition of the University’s Nordic heritage.

During the academic year, the Center is open to the public on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 11 am to 3 pm and on Sundays from 1 pm to 4 pm, with a few exceptions. Admission is free and everyone is welcome!

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