The Swedish Historical Society is mindful that there will continue to be various challenges brought on by the pandemic. The guidelines set forth by state and local governments addressing continued public health safety concerns and efforts to keep appropriate social distancing have created difficulties for staff, volunteers and visitors to the Erlander Museum and Nordic Cultural Center. We will continue to follow the directives of the public health departments and will keep you updated on any new developments, including information about reopening. For now, the Erlander Home Museum and Nordic Cultural Center will continue to remain closed until further notice.
