Fodor's Review

You don't have to be Swedish to find this tiny and welcoming museum interesting. Permanent displays include 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.
