You’re a Part of Us. We’re Part of You.

It’s like stepping into a Hungarian American time capsule.

Founded in 1955, the Foundation’s ongoing mission is to communicate the story of American Hungarians through the Hungarian Heritage Center, which is the only facility of its type to offer archives, a museum and library in the United States.

We are equal parts preservation and celebration.

The Foundation’s location in the Northeast region of the United States places it not only in a historically important area for American Hungarians, but is also in close reach of nearly forty percent of the current American Hungarian population.

The American Hungarian Foundation is dedicated to preserving, maintaining and celebrating the Hungarian heritage in the United States.

OUR HISTORY

Our Vision

THE AMERICAN HUNGARIAN FOUNDATION HAS PRESENTED UNPARALLELED EXHIBITS OF THE VISUAL ARTS

We believe we have more than enough room to house all our Hungarian arts, textiles, artifacts and archives.

Gallery »

The primary focus of the American Hungarian Foundation gallery is to curate and present exhibits of the extensive collections acquired from donors and to present temporary exhibits from around the world.

The Foundation’s archival holdings include;

  • Personal papers and records of institutions and organizations
