The Museum of Danish America will be launching a new traveling exhibition about hygge (“HOO-geh”), the Danish word that encapsulates ideas of coziness, hospitality, warmth – and lots of candles! The exhibit will introduce different aspects of hygge, a long-standing value in Scandinavian culture and one that has received widespread international attention in recent years.

If you would like to bring Hygge to your community, contact Tova Brandt (tova.brandt@danishmuseum.org) to learn more and to make a reservation. This exhibition is made possible with generous support from Cynthia Larsen Adams & Gary Adams of Colorado.

Public Schedule:

August 17-20, 2017 Danish Festival, Greenville, MI

September 10-24, 2017 Danish Lutheran Church and Cultural Center, Yorba Linda, CA
