Permanent Collection

The Greek Museum - The Center for Greek American Heritatge houses an extensive collection of arifacts, photographs, records, documents and books with a focus on NY. The history of the  Greek immigrant  provides  an amazing cross section of material that is both local and global in its scope.  The early Greek immigrants came from the mainland of Greece, the islands of Greece, and Turkey, where there was a large Greek community established for hundreds of years.  In addition, many came from Egypt and other parts of Europe, carrying their Greek roots with them to the "new land"

Our museum committee maintains the collection with great care, and new items are added regularly,  thanks to our generous donors. We have listed a few of our favorite pieces from the permanent exhibit here:
