A new gallery, Norsk Kultur, opened its doors in the Norway pavilion at Epcot over the weekend. The gallery showcases a collection of artifacts and objects that inspired the world of Disney’s “Frozen.
‘Frozen’-Inspired ‘Norsk Kultur’ Gallery Opens at Epcot

Norsk Kultur, meaning “Norweigan Culture,” will feature items such as: an authentic hand-made bunad, the traditional costume of Norway; A hardanger fiddle and other handmade instruments; Hand-carved artisan furniture; Examples of rosemaling (traditional Norse decorative painting) and more. The collection will also feature a Southern Sami Man’s outfit – in the film, the character of Kristoff represents a blend of both Northern and Southern indigenous Sami culture. Some artifacts on display date back as early as the 1200s.

Don’t forget – Disney’s “Frozen” opens in theaters November 27.

So…is this new gallery where the Viking exhibit was? My kids love that exhibit. Will it be gone forever or just while the Frozen promo is being shown?

Perhaps this is silly, but since we are using the Norwegian language here:

In Norwegian you wouldn’t capitalize the k in “kultur”, thus the sign should say “Norsk kultur” and not “Norsk Kultur”. They also called the Princess Meet and Greet “Prinsesse Plass”, which in Norwegian means “[a] Princess [named] Place”. It would have been better to call it “Prinsesseplassen” or “Prinsessetorget”.
