Family Fun Directory of Things To Do with Kids:
The Gammelgården Museum is a museum of Swedish immigrants in Minnesota and the U.S. in general. Built on an old homestead and adjacent to a city park, a visit to this museum makes a nice Sunday drive from the Twin Cities. "Gammelgården" means Old Farm in Swedish. Here visitors can step back in history and experience the lives of early Swedish immigrants in the only open air museum devoted to Swedish immigration in the United States.
On our last visit, we learned that Janet Beeler Shaw, the author of the American Girl Kirsten books, actually came to Gammelgården to research what life would have been like for Kirsten.
