Our Vision...

As part of its mission, the Museum will chronicle the struggles, triumphs and contributions of a vibrant Greek immigrant community’s journey to Michigan. Their legacy will be recorded and preserved through artifacts, oral histories, documents and photographs. This rich heritage of extraordinary Greek-Americans, will be passed on from generation to generation.

The Museum aspires to be in the truest sense of the word, a Mouseion, a house of the Muses. Like the Mouseion in ancient Alexandria, it will present and promote the many artistic and intellectual achievements of Hellenic culture in every field of human endeavor over the ages up to the present. It will provide a place and opportunity to learn about Hellenic culture through exhibits from all over the world, educational workshops, guest lectures and cultural events.
