Scandinavia House: The Nordic Center in America
Inside this lovely, airy space—a fitting homage to the natural simplicity of Scandinavian design—you can walk around the gallery of Scandinavian art, come see classic and cutting-edge movies, live concerts, readings and lectures that celebrate the history and culture of the region, or sign up for a language class in Danish, Norwegian or Swedish; some events are by paid admission.
