Scandinavian Traditions takes a nostalgic look at childhood memories and family traditions and shows us that there is more to being Scandinavian than Ole and Lena jokes this heritage is something to celebrate! Scandinavian Traditions documents how Scandinavian artists are preserving their ethnic identity and harks back to Grandma in the kitchen through the rich Nordic food traditions. Also included are tours of four premier Scandinavian heritage museums: Versterheim Norwegian-American Museum in Decorah, Iowa; Nordic Heritage Museum in Ballard, Washington; American Swedish Museum in Minneapolis, Minnesota; and New Icelandic Heritage Museum in Gimli, Manitoba.
