Museum
“Minnesota has always had a large population of Scandinavians, so it’s only right to learn about the culture and eat the food, both of which you can do at the 1908 Turnblad mansion: an enormous, French Chateau-esque structure once home to Swedish immigrants. Inside its walls resides The American Swedish Institute, a museum and cultural center dedicated to preserving and sharing the rich history of Sweden and the Swedish-American population. With a large display of art, an extensive library collection and seasonal exhibits, this Minnesota and National Register of Historic Places landmark is full of artifacts and information highlighting contemporary and historical Swedish culture. New exhibits like Amp Up! The Hagstrom Guitar Sensation and Swedes Rock! delve into Sweden’s musical history while past exhibits have had scientific and holiday themes. Stop by the museum store for unique trinkets or dine in FIKA, the onsite cafe, offering award-winning Nordic-inspired cuisine.”

Coffee Shop

“Hands down my favorite coffee place in MN. This is such a cute spot with amazing vibes! Ample seating, lots of natural light, a very comfy feel inside. A selection of drink choices for both the coffee and non-coffee lover. Try the SpyGirl latte (lavender and honey) or any of their lattes. All the drinks I've tried were delicious and what's even better is that they work with local and organic food businesses whenever possible.”
