  • This is a wonderful museum for those interested in American immigrant history and Scandinavian traditions. I’ve visited three times so far. It is in a beautiful setting and a photographers paradise. My last visit in October 2018 I attended an Annie’s Swedish coffee and tour. The museum director, Lyn, gave the tour and she was excellent. She really gave life to what immigrant history was like for 19th Scandinavians who settled in the Minnesota area. Someone marked this museum as “permanently closed,” which is not accurate. It is only closed during the months when winter is most severe. It is best to check by calling or looking at the museum calendar before visiting.
  • I was excited to go there as I heard so much about it. It provided some interesting photo opportunities but none of the buildings were open. Lots of people stopping to look around. I guess they only do tours for groups by reservation. Wasn't all that impressed.
