Who would have thought the headquarters of the American-Scandinavian Foundation would be so kid-friendly. True, for the adults there’s Icelandic art and Estonian cello music, but the children’s area is filled with such Danish favorites as Legos, model ice caves and volcanoes, and mirrored floors. During the year there are concerts in honor of Pippi Longstocking, Saturday mornings with the Hans Christian Andersen Storytellers, puppet theaters, and more. For the sophisticated palette there’s the AQ café, operated by the ever-smart Aquavit restaurant.
