The Armenian American Museum will be the first world class cultural and educational center of its kind in America. The Museum will be a center for Armenian Americans to discover their roots and for people of diverse backgrounds to discover cross-cultural connections and celebrate the rich multicultural tapestry of America.
The Armenian American Museum will be built in the heart of Southern California and serve as an arts and cultural destination for local patrons and visitors from around the world. The City of Glendale, home to one of the largest Armenian diaspora communities, has dedicated premier land for the historic project in downtown Central Park.
The mission of the Armenian American Museum and Cultural Center of California is to promote understanding and appreciation of America’s ethnic and cultural diversity by sharing the Armenian American experience.
The vision is a cultural campus that enriches the community, educates the public on the Armenian American story, and empowers individuals to embrace cultural diversity and speak out against prejudice.
The Armenian American Museum and Cultural Center of California is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The governance of the Museum is entrusted to ten Armenian American cultural, philanthropic, and religious non-profit institutions.
