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.

City of Glendale

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 City of Glendale and the Armenian American Museum agreed to a $1-per-year Ground Lease Agreement, officially marking Central Park as the future site of the cultural and educational center.

The museum will neighbor The Americana at Brand, Downtown Central Library, and Museum of Neon Art (MONA).

Museum Campus

Glendale City Council approved a major $18.5 million expansion and redesign of the museum campus at Central Park.

The proposal includes the creation of a new central lawn connecting the museum and library, an outdoor amphitheater for live performances, a children’s park with playgrounds and splash pads, and outdoor recreation amenities for the community.
