American Swedish Institute In Minneapolis, Minnesota

The American Swedish Institute In Minneapolis certainly merits a visit when in the area given so many Swedes have moved to the city and its environs over the centuries. A number of informative talks, language-learning classes, and temporary exhibits are scheduled regularly at the museum complex to allow visitors to explore the Scandinavian heritage, history, and culture of the state. A community hub and place to celebrate Swedish culture, the institute was founded in 1929 and consists of both the modern Nelson Cultural Center and the historic Turnblad Mansion. There is a cultural center located in the neighborhood with some outstanding concerts, workshops, and community gatherings. The latter has some stunning Chateauesque architecture as well as dozens of exquisitely decorated rooms.
