    At the Brunk Children’s Museum of Immigration on the third floor, kids can play in a Swedish farmhouse, board a steamship or viking ship, and learn about American immigration stories.

    The staff here were so friendly and informative, they made my visit so memorable. And of course I couldn't resist the gift shop.

    Excellent children's immigration museum. They charge by the family, making this a very affordable afternoon. Afterwards, wander up and down Clark Street in Andersonville for food and window shopping.
