Mission Statement

MISSION STATEMENT

Through its arts and educational programs and its permanent collection, the Swedish American Museum interprets the immigrant experience for children and adults and promotes appreciation of contemporary Swedish-American culture.

Description

DESCRIPTION

The Swedish American Museum is a vibrant part of the Andersonville community and has much to offer. We have a Museum gift shop, a first floor gallery space that houses up to four special exhibits a year, a main exhibit area focusing on Swedish immigration on the second floor, and the Brunk Children's Museum of Immigration on the third floor where younger kids can come and enjoy a hands-on experience. We also try to maintain our mission's purpose by holding programs and events such as concerts, lectures, family and children oriented programs, and traditional events such as Julmarknad, Midsommarfest, and a Herring Breakfast.
