Nordic National Museums Strengthening Arctic Heritage


Nordic national cultural history museums are linked with Arctic societies due to the shared heritage of substantial museum collections. We share concerns to re-vitalize, preserve and exchange knowledge on this heritage. Thanks to a grant from NMR’s The Nordic region and its neighbors to the west the National Museum (DK) in partnership with the Museum of Cultural History (NO) in 2017-19 successfully executed the project Arctic heritage in Nordic museums. Strengthening Arctic efforts in Nordic national museums. This volume presents recommendations within the project’s three major fields:1) Intensified collaboration on digital strategies and heritage perspectives with Canadian Inuit organizations,2) a comprehensive and critical analysis of digital databases of cultural institutions in the ABM sector,3) the constitution of a feasible and sustainable Nordic Cross-Arctic Museum Network.
