The National Hellenic Museum preserves and portrays Greek history
The NHM is dedicated to connecting generations to the legacy of Greek culture and history and the Greek story in America. The Museum preserves and portrays Greek history and the Hellenic legacy, sparking inquiry and discussion about the broader issues in our lives and communities through educational classes, exhibitions, and programs.
The Museum highlights Greek-American contributions to the American mosaic and inspires curiosity about visitors’ own family stories through cultural expression and oral history.
Field trips and tours are available every day. Public programs and community events are scheduled throughout the year. The NHM Greek Language Program offers semester-long lessons in modern Greek to all ages.
The NHM’s educational approach draws from its rich depository of over twenty thousand artifacts, photos, books, historic newspapers, and 450 recorded histories.
The NHM Collections & Archives are preserved onsite, including the Frank S. Kamberos Oral History Center which gathers audio and video recordings of interviews with Greek-Americans from every walk of life. Each day, researchers, students, teachers, and historians access the archives to learn more.
Artifacts, replicas, and recorded histories are used in dynamic programming to teach skills such as critical thinking, research, writing, and interviewing. Students gain appreciation for the arts, sciences, and humanities from lessons learned across thousands of years of Greek history.
For over thirty years and as a result of countless volunteer hours, countless individuals have helped make the NHM a renowned hub for Greek-American history, and the National Hellenic Museum continues to evolve with the help of many dedicated patrons, volunteers, and loyal supporters.
