Event Navigation

Hygge is a Danish word used when acknowledging a feeling or moment, whether alone or with friends, at home or out, ordinary or extraordinary as cozy, charming or special. It requires consciousness, a certain slowness, and the ability to not just be present – but recognize and enjoy the present.While there’s no one English word or simple definition to describe hygge, several can be used interchangeably to describe the idea of hygge such as coziness, charm, happiness, feeling content, security, familiarity, comfort, reassurance, kinship, and simpleness.Danes created hygge to cope with the cold and dark months of the year. The simple act of a candle glowing with a cup of coffee in the morning or a home cooked evening meal with friends can make a huge difference to one’s spirit. Experience some Hygge at the Museum with some traditional Swedish baked goods and carrot cake at the Museum’s pop-up café.
