Midsommar Celebrations

It’s been great to celebrate Midsommar in Chicago, Rockford, and Geneva this year. The Museum took some of our items from the store on the road and had a wonderful time working with Swedish Historical Society in Rockford and be part of Sweden Väst in Geneva. Hope to be back next year.
