An homage to Swedish-American history and culture, this three-story museum is located in Andersonville, one of the country's most concentrated areas of Swedish culture. Established in a small log cabin in 1976, the museum is now a 24,000-square-foot facility housing a special exhibit gallery as well as a permanent exhibit entitled "The Dream of America – Immigration to Chicago." There, visitors find authentic artifacts, including passports, folk crafts, and household items. The Brunk Children's Museum of Immigration features hands–on exhibits just for kids, such as a replica of a century–old Swedish farmhouse where young patrons can milk a cow.
