Nestled in the bucolic Franklin D. Roosevelt Park in South Philadelphia, PA, the American Swedish Historical Museum was built in 1926 to celebrate Swedish heritage and culture in America. During your visit, you may step inside a 19th century farm house, take in the setting of an art deco lounge, or surround yourself with contemporary Swedish design.
