The American Swedish Institute is dedicated to Minneapolis’ rich Swedish heritage and aims to keep traditions alive in the local community. Explore the ornate Swan Turnblad Mansion and discover the interactive workshops and exhibitions on display at the adjoining Nelson Cultural Center. The American Swedish Institute encourages a shared experience of the Nordic region’s customs, environment, culture and arts through its exciting program.
The ASI’s museum is situated within the Swan Turnblad Mansion and the Osher Gallery. The chateau-style mansion was built in 1908 as the home of the publisher and owner of one of the country’s largest Swedish-language newspapers. Wander through 33 rooms and admire the opulent period furnishings. Highlights include the brightly colored Swedish tile stoves and traditional woodcarvings. Children can explore the Youth & Family Gallery, which displays imaginative artworks and hands-on exhibits for families to learn about Swedish culture.
In the Nelson Cultural Center join one of the classes or workshops for adults to get practical experience creating Nordic-style food or learning traditional handcrafts, such as felting, glassmaking and woodcarving. Swedish and Finnish-language classes are also available.
Try out your Swedish vocabulary at the FIKA Café, which serves traditional pastries and sweets, as well as more substantial Nordic-fusion meals. The Museum Shop presents a curated selection of Scandinavian design items, including jewelry, home décor and traditional crafts.
Take advantage of the ASI’s guided tours, which are included in admission to the museum and provide deeper insight into the lives of early Swedish immigrants in Minneapolis. Audio guides are also available by dialing the Ring-A-Tour service on your cell phone.
The American Swedish Institute is located in the Phillips West district of Minneapolis. Drive here and park at the ASI’s free on-site parking lot or catch the bus from downtown Minneapolis.
