About / Careers

Join the ASI team!

Known as one of the leading museums and cultural centers in the Twin Cities, the American Swedish Institute offers inclusive, transformative arts and culture experiences centered around learning, reflection, and collaboration. ASI presents a rich array of exhibitions based on its permanent collections as well as on works from public and private collections around the globe. With a decades-long commitment to community engagement and outreach, ASI offers educational programs and activities that benefit the lives of more than 150,000 Minnesotans each year, and many more who connect to programs worldwide.

ASI’s Values – stewardship, hospitality, learning, difference, innovation and sustainability – guide a work culture of trust, respect, innovation, and collaboration. Large enough to create lasting impact, and small enough to remain nimble, ASI is a place where great ideas can come from anywhere – and anyone.

Please apply to any listed openings.
