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.

During the summer until September 9, 2019, the Center is open to the public 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.
