Gammelgården Museum Open House

May 4 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Gammelgården Museum Open House

From 10 a.m.–4 p.m. on May 4, there are free self-guided tours of Gammelgården’s historic buildings, hands-on activities, an artists and crafters fair, an art exhibit, Living History Society of MN costumed interpreters and more.

Opening Day celebrates Gammelgården Museum of Scandia’s focus in its 52nd year: Past times and Games of Early Immigrants.

In addition, visitors of all ages can experience what life was like for immigrants and early settlers by packing a steamer trunk for America just like Swedish immigrants would have done in the 1800s, make homemade butter, weave on large looms, “milk” a cow, haul water with a yoke, shuck corn, lift real straw- and hay bales and write on slates as children did in one-room schoolhouses.

People of all ages can do make-and-take activities as well as go on a Spring scavenger hunt.

Many artists and crafters will have their work available for sale and some will be demonstrating their craft.
