Time Out says

Though the Swede life is a little harder to uncover in Chicago these days, a small but dedicated bastion of Scandinavian history and culture is still alive and well in the Andersonville neighborhood. In close proximity to the few remaining Swedish shops and restaurants, the museum houses artifacts dating back to the mass immigration of Swedes to Chicago 200 years ago and features rotating exhibitions of contemporary Swedish artists’ work, with a special focus on textile art.
