GAMMELGARDEN MUSEUM | Gammelgården Events are Back!

Come enjoy a lazy afternoon of Bluegrass & Lemonade on Sunday, June 27th! Looking for a tour? Visit our 5 historic buildings from May 1 – mid October. Private group tours are available by reservation (limit 12 per tour).

Meaning “old farm” in Swedish, the Gammelgården Museum is the only open-air museum devoted to preserving, presenting, and promoting Swedish immigrant heritage in the United States. Through the historic buildings that have been preserved, artifacts on display, special events, and classes, visitors can experience the daily lives of early immigrants in Minnesota through a Swedish lens.

Gammelgården Museum COVID-19 Health and Safety Update:
The Gammelgården Museum is pleased to announce that we are opening on May 1, 2021.

We look forward to welcoming you back this season and have developed best practices to keep you safe during your visit. Health and safety measures have been put in place based on recommendations set forth by the Minnesota Department of Health, Stay Safe MN guidelines. To comply with these guidelines, modifications have been made to Gammelgården operations, as well as to seasonal programming and events.

To ensure your safety, we have eliminated some of the programs and seasonal events we offer and have reduced the number of participants in our historic building tours, special events, and classes. The number of museum guests allowed in our buildings at one time will be monitored due to reduced capacity limits. You are welcome to shop in person at the Scandia Butik Gift Shop but you may be asked to wait to enter if the Butik is at capacity. Please come prepared to purchase your items with a credit or debit card.

During your visit, we ask that you stay at least six feet away from others who are not in your group and refrain from touching displays and museum artifacts.
Staff and visitors are required to wear face coverings at all times while on the premises. Those without face coverings will be asked to visit another time.
As a friendly reminder, please do not visit Gammelgården Museum if you are ill or exhibiting symptoms.

We are committed to remaining open this season as long as we feel it is safe to do so. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and partnership in helping to make this happen.
