  • $5 admission with student ID. Not much excitement going on in here though - but the fireplaces (art lovers, rejoice) in many rooms throughout were a wonder to look at, artistically-speaking. Your self...  more »

  • This museum is a great size. It's not so big that you'd have to spend all day there, but it's not so small that you're finished in 20 minutes. I really enjoyed walking around and taking photos
  • The American Swedish Institue never disappoints. I recently toured the 101 Bowls exhibit that just opened. Three words, don't miss it. This exhibit showcases the work of artists who in many ways give new meaning to the word bowl. I was not only impressed with the various styles and interpretations by the different artists, but what really made it for me was the way the exhibit was arranged and displayed. The dark room with the art glass perfectly lit to highlight the beauty and colors of the pieces gathered the most wows. I definitely want to go back for a second visit.
  • Who would have known that nestled inside the Twin Cities is a flipping CASTLE! Who would have taken it further to see that they could actually rent it for a wedding day? Crazy! This is easily one of the most beautiful venues we've been lucky enough to photograph. The staff did a wonderful job of maintaining a perfect blend of classy and elegant and the Bride & Groom had a stress free and gorgeous wedding day. Top notch!
  • The place is awesome, not really for young kids to me but all are welcome. Lots to see and a few things to do but it's actually been years since i was n there, so it might have changed some. But i thought it was neat n inexpensive.
  • Striking modern structure attached to a Swedish immigrants mansion.The buildings Have the clever attached bridge from the institute.to the mansion that Minnesota is so good at adding. Cafe was very busy and felt like a destination for the food alone. Gift shop had the Nordic and scandinavian offerings. See the bowl exhibit and all the small, yet worthy exhibit offerings. Enjoyable time and a great regional treat.
