Cleveland Hungarian Heritage Museum

The Cleveland Hungarian Heritage Society's mission is to preserve Hungarian culture and the experience of Hungarians in Northeast Ohio, so that others, now and in the future, can draw upon its collection for education, inspiration, and enrichment.

To carry out its mission, the Society operates a museum and a library as a center for Hungarian historical, cultural and artistic exhibitions, and sponsors educational and research activities. The Museum is located on the upper level [floor 2] of the Galleria.

Andrea M. Meszaros, Vice-president, Cleveland Hungarian Heritage Society, shows some of the Museum's collection.
