Preserving Heritage

Learn & Discover

Together as Families

Step back in history.

Meaning “old farm” in Swedish, the Gammelgården Museum is the only open air museum devoted to preserving, presenting and promoting Swedish immigrant heritage in the United States. In buildings that have been carefully preserved and restored, visitors can get a glimpse of the daily lives & artifacts of these immigrants and participate in events and classes. The main exhibit in the Välkommen Hus and our Butik gift shop are open daily May – December.




The main exhibit in the Välkommen Hus & the Butik gift shop are open Monday-Saturday 10- 4pm & Sunday 1- 4pm, May – December.


Visit our 5 historic log buildings from May to mid-Oct. Tours are given Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 1 & 2:30 or for groups by reservation.


Explore the exciting variety of events we have planned this year for visitors of all ages.
