Out & About: American Swedish Institute
The Turnblad Mansion, completed in 1908, is truly a sight to behold. Its “French Chateauesque” style, wood-carved trim, 11 tile stoves, and 33 rooms make this a must-see. Now imagine this cultural gem decked out over the top for the holidays! After a guided one-hour tour of the mansion, there will be time to wander through the Nelson Cultural Center (added in 2012) or stop for a treat in the café, Fika, or take a look in the museum store before we head back across the river.
