The Swedish Emigrant Institute was founded in 1965 and is situated in The House of Emigrants in Växjö. Here are archives, consisting of emigrant letters, diaries, photos, and sound recordings of interviews with Swedish-Americans . There is also a large exhibition about the famous Swedish author Vilhelm Moberg including his extensive research material, used when he wrote his emigrant novels. All in all, this is the greatest collection of Swedes in America of our time. A gold mine for all history enthusiasts.

The Library holds an enormous collection of books and literature for and about emigrants, including a large amount of published material in America by and for Swedish emigrants. One can come here to study anything concerning emigration, general history, family history, Swedish-America, demography, genealogy and much, much more. Thousands of people visit the research room every year to make use of the fantastic resources here. This is also the place to come if you are an American looking for your Swedish roots, or vice versa.

The permanent exhibition in The House of Emigrants is called The Dream of America, and it describes the great Swedish Emigration to America in 1840-1930. Other exhibitions are The Snoose Boulevard, Titanic and Charles Lindbergh and a multitude of temporary ones. Here one can also find The Moberg Room where one can study the author's books and his life (1898-1998). Vilhelm Moberg´s novels are current topics especially after the great success of the musical Kristina From Duvemåla, one of the most popular ones in Swedish history. The House of Emigrants is a must when visiting Växjö and here there is always something new to learn and experience. The Emigrant Café and The Emigrant Shop offers refreshments, literature and souvenirs.
