Jenny Lind Chapel

The Chapel hosts special events throughout the year.

Annual Joy of Christmas with Augustana College
Wednesday, December 7, 7:30 pm
Students and faculty from Augustana College join the community for this beautiful service of worship and music that starts at Augustana Lutheran Church in Andover. The Christmas story will be read in several different languages.

The service concludes with a procession to the Jenny Lind Chapel, which is illuminated by 100 candles, and where Holy Communion will be celebrated to the strains of familiar Christmas carols.

The service will be live-streamed. The link will be here or you can watch it anytime after the service has ended.

Refreshments will be served in Luther Hall immediately after the service.

The Chapel and museum will be open every day, 9 am to 5 pm, April through October.


The building is air conditioned, for your comfort and to help preserve the artifacts. A five minute narrated slideshow about the history of the Chapel may be viewed on the iPad located on the desk in the museum. We also have a Facebook page.
