  • What a beautiful and historic place. My wife's family is primarily Swedish so they can definitely appreciate historic parts of this place, but the architecture and scale of the place is quite awe-striking. Not very costly to get in and you can just enjoy the stroll around the grounds. Lots of little fun things for kids to do and see as well as adults to appreciate and take it slow. Worth the visit.
  • I recently started doing my family tree. I'm from Swedish decent so I came here to check it out. The house is very interesting and full of history. If you want to learn about some Swedish history come check it out. You can also get some lunch while your there!
  • Took a group there for a tour (CHOICE Inc. from Eden Prairie) and they were magnificent and accommodating the entire time. Went so smoothly, I'd recommend it to anyone who is looking for a group tour that is fun, educational, and friendly. They worked with us so well. I just can't say enough!!! :)
  • We ended our trip to Minnesota here for a quick bite of Swedish food. The place was spotless and the staff friendly. I wish we had time to visit the museum. The gift shop, though, sold pretty items.
  • When I moved to Minneapolis, the American Swedish Institute was a spot that was synonymous with "old". Some may have said "stodgy". With the new addition and interesting programming, ASI has expanded its appeal to a wider audience. Swedish chef Magnus Nilsson's visit provided several great opportunities to visit ASI for young and old. Eating at Fika is also excellent. Weekend brunch including cardamom buns is worth a trip.
