Interesting history of the immigration of swedes and mennonites to this area - and the mill is kinda cool, but a bit musty smelling, and hard to figure out whats-what. At least it was only s $2 entrance fee - and the lady did mention there was a video - which might have made it all make a bit more... More

I attended a Swedish genealogy conference in March and part of our registration offered free access to the museum ... which otherwise I think is only $2.00. The first building houses exhibits from the region, exploring the flora/fauna of the region, the earliest settlers and some of their artifacts. A second room related solely to the immigrant experience. The north... More

This place is really neat. The old flour mill is very impressive. My favorite time to visit is during Millfest when they actually have it running. A guided tour during this time is also an earful.

We visited the museum, mill, and recreated Swedish village. The museum has quite a few immigration stories that bring the past to life. The mill is in good condition and very well-maintained. The children probably enjoyed the village more than anything else. If in Lindsborg, a stop at this museum is a must!

When you go in the museum, be sure to watch the 8 minute dvd showing the mill in action. The mill is almost all made of wood rather than metal, There is also a nice Santa Fe Trail section. One fascinating display is of small (1-2 ft) cement sculptures of various people. I thought they were wood carvings. They were... More

The Smoky Valley Roller Mills is an actual original Flour Mill still producing flour when operating. But they have tours of the mill from when the wheat arrives from the fields showing how from top to bottom wheat is turned into flour. If you've never seen flour made, you must stop & take a tour. You have a higher appreciate... More

The lady at the desk was fantastic and I thought the mill was well taken care of. There are a lot of stairs so be aware of that. Is worth a stop and there are some photos to be taken but it is not one of the best museums I have ever seen. Still, if you are in the area... More

The lady at the desk, Lorna N., is a five star greeter. She started us with the movie. The mill itself is three stories of intricate machinery. The Swedish pavilion & old railway station (across the street) were included in the $2 entry fee. I enjoyed a $1 bottle of Kansas brewed root beer sold in the combo entry/ gift... More

You have an old mill museum, and across the street (for the same low $2) see a few 100+ years old buildings (schools, bank, drugstore, train depot, and a few others) that will hold your interest for awhile. Then go to one of the few Swedish restaurants/tourist shops a few blocks downtown. Or go to Coronado Heights a few miles... More
