Tours

Are you interested in seeing the inside of the five historic buildings? If so, our guided tours provide a glimpse into the daily lives of early immigrants. Take a journey back in time as you experience what immigrant life was like in the 1850s as you tour the first Swedish settlement in Minnesota. You’ll be immersed in history as you visit our historic buildings and see artifacts on display.

Begin in the Välkommen Hus for the history of Gammelgården Museum of Scandia and early Swedish immigration to Minnesota. Next, tour our five historic buildings with your guide. Finally, view the exhibit on display in the Passage Room of the Välkommen Hus and visit the Butik.
