SCC Artifact Collections

The Scandinavian Cultural Center Collections holds over three thousand  cultural artifacts and art works related to Nordic lands and people, Nordic-Americans, and PLU’s Nordic heritage. The Center’s collection represent artifacts dating from the 17th century up to the present and is especially rich in textile works, woodworking objects and ceramic plates.

To the left you will find a link to the Scandinavian Cultural Center’s Artifact Collection Online. The Collection Online is a work in progress and we will continue to work on it until we have all the artifacts accessible. Our progress has been slowed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Each record needs to updated for best practices and accuracy. We hope you enjoy what we have made accessible so far!

The SCC has accepted artifact donations since 1983. If you are interested in donating artifacts to the collection, please read the summaries below (forthcoming) and contact the SCC Director for more information about our collection policy and procedures. The SCC does not accept books, manuscripts, or other printed materials. We suggest contacting PLU’s Archives.
