The doors to the Irish American Heritage Museum are open to all who seek to learn about the experiences and the rich contributions of the Irish here in America. Almost 40 million people in the United States claim Irish ancestry. The goal of this museum is to inspire you to think about, and connect to, your own heritage — Irish or otherwise — and to pass it on to future generations. Visit us today!

In addition to our exhibits and reserach offerings, we also extend Genealogical Research Classes to the public. View an up-to date schedule of museum events.
