The American Hungarian Foundation continues to fulfill our mission to Collect, Conserve and Celebrate the contributions, traditions, stories, history, heritage and culture that American Hungarians have contributed to the American way of life since 1776.
In 1955, the American Hungarian Foundation opened in Illinois. We’ve been in New Brunswick, New Jersey since 1959, and opened the Hungarian Heritage Center in 1989. A symbol of Hungary in America, the building designed by Board member architect Laszlo Papp, includes a museum, library and archive facility.
Through our museum, library, archives, lecture series, crafts workshops and other educational programs and alliances, the American Hungarian Foundation is the center of excellence for enabling cultural discovery, supporting research and enhancing the understanding and appreciation of the Hungarian heritage in America for future generations.
