The American Swedish History Museum celebrates the holidays with some great fun for your family. On November 6, from 10 am - 5 pm Sweden's leading shop for children's wear will join the Swedish History Museum and present a Sample and Warehouse sale of garments made by POLARIN O. PYRET.
POLARIN O. PYRET is a classic children's brand of clothing known for durability, comfort and quality. The Sample sale will offer their clothing at up to 75% off regular prices (size newborn to 12 years old.) There will be refreshments, a Swedish fika and free admission to the museum.
Help support the Museum and get some of your holiday shopping done!
One December 7, at 6 PM join the ASHM for a traditional Swedish feast complete with a Christmas Market selling holiday items and baked goods. (YUM!) Tickets are $45 for members, $55 for non-members. Come visit the museum for a very special Swedish holiday tradition. Drinks (a cash bar) and an authentic Christmas smörgåsbord dinner are followed by the Lucia procession. Register by phone by December 3, 2012.
If you can't make it on Friday, come Saturday, December 8 11:30 am to 4:30 pm for the family friendly Lucia processions at 1 pm and 3 pm. The Christmas Market will include favorite holiday deli items, Christmas decorations, gifts and bakery items. The Christmas Cafe will be selling holiday foods and sweets. While reservations are not required, tickets can be purchased in advance online.
On December 15, there will be a Holiday Concert at the ASHM. Singers will perform classic Swedish classics and some American favorites with a Swedish twist. Glogg and cookies will be served free with museum admission.
Planning a holiday party? The museum can be rented and is the perfect venue for a holiday party that is 'just a bit different.' Tables for cocktails and appetizers can be set up in the lobby and among some of the exhibits. There is a dining room. The museum is handicapped accessible but call ahead, it is a little tricky to find the door.
Come see this local museum that too many of us miss! It will be both educational and fun for the kids. Check out their web site and call for additional information and other events.
