Swedish American Museum Center

Swedish American Museum Center Review

You don't have to be Swedish to find this tiny and welcoming museum interesting. On permanent display, for example, are trunks immigrants brought with them to Chicago and a map showing where in the city different immigrant groups settled. On the third floor, in the only children's museum in the country dedicated to immigration, kids can climb aboard a colorful Viking ship or "milk" a wooden cow, pulling rubber udders to collect streams of water in a bucket.
