The Nordfriesland Museum, Ludwig-Nissen-Haus, in Husum, Nordfriesland, is one of the most traditional museums on the west coast of Schleswig-Holstein. It has its roots in the trust set up by Ludwig Nissen (1855-1924), who emigrated from Husum to New York and became prosperous as a diamond importer.
