I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the Swedish Heritage Museum in Swedesburg, Iowa. The historians are friendly and extremely knowledgeable (many of them being fourth or fifth generation Swedes themselves). Grab a Swedish souvenir & be sure to snap a photo with Ole, the 14-foot-tall Dala Horse that keeps watch out front!

Twice a year I stopped on my way through Iowa to visit family. The hospitality of the attendants in the shop is beyond wonderful. They give you free coffee, and homemade desserts are there for the asking. They have soda pop for weary travelers too. The museum is quite nice but the shop is the best and beats out Lindsborg, KS.
