Today the students visited the Alfta Emigration/Immigration (depends on your point-of-view) Museum. This museum documents the story of one of the largest flights of Swedish citizens to America.
The emigrants seemed a bit stiff… … but they brought many of their old world crafts with them.
Pretty much the Swedes were on the run…
They had to climb some stairs and cross the ocean in rough conditions to get to America!
However, with the good book and lots of rest they were able to build a new life in a new land!
After learning so much at the Immigration Museum were visited the museum shop and had fika!
Here are some views of the old farm houses we visited…early IKEA style:
