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.
