TOUR MINNESOTA ASSOCIATION Enhances the “Minnesota Experience” for Groups and Travelers


ince 1974 when it was originally formed as a group travel organization, Tour Minnesota Association (TMA) has offered services of information, networking, legislative lobbying and more to Minnesota organizations, individuals, and travelers. Today, with an annual Tour Minnesota Directory and web site www.tourmn.org , TMA shares travel ideas and available services of its members with individual travelers and groups alike.

TMA is a statewide, non-profit organization made up of an array of organizations from both the private and public sectors. It supports tourism in Minnesota by encouraging partnerships, growth and advocating tourism related issues to legislators. TMA also promotes member attractions, organizations and services to the traveling public.


Today, a big beautiful tour bus travels the U. S. wrapped with the TMA logo, web site and phone number. Media sources estimate the bus wrap and web address will be seen by at least 5 million people throughout its two-year life.


“We’re set to provide fun and interesting ideas and destinations for groups of travelers and individual travel parties alike,” says Tom E. Benson, TMA president. “All it takes to get our attention is a visit to our web site and a call to any member listed there…they are ready and waiting to share ideas.”

Choose a meal package from one of our many options: The smörgåsbord buffet, a lighter soup-and-sandwich lunch, or just dessert if you’re short on time. And NEW THIS YEAR…


Add one of our hands-on programs: • A Year of Swedish Holiday Traditions • Christmastime in Sweden • Swedish Immigrant Trunk


All hands-on programs are led by expert volunteers. Participants will imagine walking in the shoes of Swedish immigrants with a program that’s part show-and-tell, part “Antiques Roadshow,” and part a walk down memory lane.


This summer, don’t miss our new exhibit, “Fit For a Queen: Nobel Gowns of H.M. Queen Silvia of Sweden”. Queen Silvia’s royal gowns on loan from the Royal Collections of Sweden, will be shown at the American Swedish Institute June 11 through September 28, 2008.
