Hear the Stories, Taste the Food

Hear the real stories about the first Swedes in Minnesota. They knew how to not only survive, but thrive. Come hear the stories as you tour Gammelgården’s historic buildings, and enjoy a meal (or a snack) of Swedish dishes. Yum! Who can resist Swedish sweets?

Step back in time to 1860 with the first Swedes, see how they worked, played and prayed. Tour the oldest Lutheran sanctuary in Minnesota, the original pastor’s house and barn and hear the stories of these early settlers. Our inside exhibit for 2019 is Gammelgården’s Attic. See how what we had stored away compares to what you have in your attic! Bet you don’t have a lice comb!
Combine your tour with Fika (coffee and cinnamon bun) or enjoy a Smörgåsar lunch. This year we’re offering Smörgåsbord on the 4th Thursday of the month thru September. You can tour before you feast or after – your choice.
