The Mission of the Irish American Heritage Museum is to preserve and tell the story of the Irish people and their culture in America, inspiring individuals to examine the importance of their own heritage as part of the American fabric.
The Museum is unique in America, where almost 36 million individuals claim Irish ancestry. It is committed to the basic tenet that preserving one’s heritage is vital to providing a cultural and historical foundation to future generations of Americans.
Our museum in Albany, New York, provides year-round access, especially by school groups, to our exhibits, our Paul O’Dwyer Library, lectures, presentations, film screenings, book signings and other special programs.
