American Swedish Institute
The American Swedish Institute is a vibrant arts & cultural center and museum. The historic Turnblad Mansion first became home to the organization in 1929. The Nelson Cultural Center addition opened in June 2012 and added a welcoming reception area, café, gallery, event center, studio arts classroom, terrace, courtyard, and expanded Museum Shop.
In 1908, the Turnblads—a Swedish immigrant family—completed the construction of their castle-like mansion on Minneapolis’ Park Avenue. Just twenty-one years later, they gave it all away to the community, founding the organization that would become the American Swedish Institute.
Today, ASI links Minneapolis history with the best of contemporary Swedish and Nordic culture. Tour the Turnblad Mansion, enjoy exhibits and the performing arts in the Mansion and Osher Gallery, find unique Nordic designed products in the ASI Museum Shop, savor new Nordic cuisine at ASI's award-winning cafe, FIKA, and explore stories from the past in Wallenberg Library and Archives. Welcome to the American Swedish Institute!
