American Swedish Institute and its collection

American Swedish Institute

The American Swedish Institute ( ASI ) is a museum and cultural center in the Phillips West neighborhood of Minneapolis , Minnesota , United States. The organization is dedicated to the preservation and study of the historic role Sweden and Swedish Americans have played in US culture and history. The museum complex includes the Swan Turnblad Mansion , completed in 1908, and the adjoining Nelson Cultural Center , completed in 2012. Today, ASI serves as a gathering place for all people to share experiences around themes of culture, migration, the environment and the arts, informed by enduring links to Sweden. The museum offers exhibitions from Sweden and the Nordic region, programming for youth and family, and in recent years, has expanded its performing arts offerings. The museum's restaurant, FIKA, was named "Best Lunch In Minnesota" by the Star Tribune in 2013 for its New Nordic cuisine.
