  • The staff here is super friendly and informative. I would definitely go back.
  • A true gem of cultural experiences. From the permanent collection and the interactive Children's Museum on the 3rd floor, to the rotating gallery on the 1st floor, the Swedish American Museum is the heart of the Andersonville community. A visit to this neighborhood isn't complete without visiting. And the store is full of wonderful Scandinavian treasures.
  • Wonderful place and organization. A real staple of Andersonville and a wonderful place to visit. Become a member and you'll have discounted events and a plethora of options.
  • This is my favorite place to take kids. The Brunk Children Museum of Immigration provides the best hands on experience for children to visually and physically learn about the means and (albeit romantic) realities of American immigrants to the Midwest. Get the family pass for the year if you live in easy driving distance, its well worth it and you will find yourself going more frequently than you think
  • Awesome reception. Great piece of Swedish history. :)
