2016 marks the 40th anniversary of the Swedish American Museum. Each day this year, we will feature a Swedish-American fact to commemorate our #40YearsInAville and the Swedish roots of our community. You can find these #OnThisDay facts on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram feeds as well as at the Museum’s front desk. Click here to see what you missed from the previous week.

The Buzz Aldrin Education Cart will soon make its debut at the Swedish American Museum and the Brunk Children’s Museum of Immigration. This tech-equipped mobile exhibit will be used on a regular basis as part of our educational programming as well as during select school tours. Children’s Museum staff will teach about various topics relating to Buzz Aldrin and his exploration of the moon using components of the cart. With the cart’s ample magnetic and expandable surfaces, staff will be able to conduct lessons and experiments for both small and large groups. This complement to our Buzz Aldrin: Space Visionary exhibit was made possible through a grant from the Swedish Council of America.
