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.

The Museum has costumes from many regions of Hungary and from various classes of people from peasant to the more affluent.
The Museum has other items such as a Cimablom, special dolls made by Hungarian Scouts, a book collection, Gift Shop and more.
