More than four centuries of history are packed into 12 galleries at the Swedish American Historical Museum in Philadelphia. In addition to tracing the history of the settlers who landed here in the 1600s, the museum explores various Swedish architectural styles, recognizes the accomplishments of numerous Swedish-Americans and celebrates Nobel Prize winners.
