The Museum offers a number of regular events for children and families. Some of these have moved online and can be found on our calendar. Others are being re-imagined as we navigate through these times.
Hejsan! Story & Craft
Third Friday of the month, 11 a.m.
Join us at the Brunk Children’s Museum of Immigration for a story and craft time. The theme for the school year 2019-2020 will be animals. All ages are welcome to attend with a caregiver for this free (with admission) program. While there is no additional cost to attend, reservations are appreciated and can be made via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Moon Madness with the Buzz Aldrin Education Cart
First Friday of the month, 3 p.m.
The Buzz Aldrin Education Cart is available for exploration. Moon Madness allow guests at the Swedish American Museum and the Brunk Children’s Museum of Immigration to enrich the experience of the Buzz Aldrin: Space Visionary exhibit. This tech-equipped mobile exhibit is used on a regular basis as part of our educational programming, as well as during select school tours. This complement to our Buzz Aldrin: Space Visionary exhibit was made possible through a grant from the Swedish Council of America.
Every other Sunday, 10 a.m. – 11 p.m.
Please check the calendar for dates.
Taking place on alternative Sundays in tandem with Svenska Skolan, Bullerbyn is a time for singing cherished children’s songs, reading humorous tales and having lots of fun in Swedish. Children aged 6 months to 5 years are welcome to attend with parents. Only Swedish is spoken in Bullerbyn, so Swedish should be spoken regularly at home too! We meet in the gallery space or the Children’s Museum. Kids are welcome to stay and play in the Brunk Children’s Museum after the program. Classes are free for members, non-members are asked to make a $5 per child/class donation; payment can be made at the Museum. Reservations are recommended and can be made by emailing email@example.com.
Every other Sunday, 10 a.m. – 12.45 p.m.
Please check the calendar for exact dates.
Svenska skolan is for children of school age (Kindergarten – High School) who speak Swedish. The children learn about Swedish history, geography and culture in a school setting. It is a great way for children to practice their Swedish with children their own age as well as learning more about their heritage. The 2018-2019 school year starts in September. If you want more information or to register please email Angelica firstname.lastname@example.org.
