New Feature!



This Andersonville museum tells the story of Swedish migration to America and the history and culture of the Swedish people. The museum hosts a number of lectures, concerts, and classes throughout the year — how about a Swedish folk dancing class? Permanent exhibits include art and artifacts relating to the Swedes, and temporary exhibits change quarterly. The gift shop sells a number of interesting items relating to Swedish art and culture, including books, glassware, toys, and figurines.
