The National Italian Museum of America will be in Philadelphia, home to the second largest Italian-American population in the United States.
Help us launch a national museum that celebrates the fascinating history, contributions, and culture of Italian Americans within the United States.
Plans for The National Italian Museum of America (NIMA) are underway as we begin raise nationwide support for the project. Learn More >
Why Have a National Italian Museum of America in Philadelphia?
As the birthplace of our nation and home to influential Italians since colonial times, Philadelphia is central to the story of Italian immigrants who helped shape culture, business, and industry in America.
Our mission and vision for The National Italian Museum of America is to create a one-of-a-kind, hands-on, experiential museum of Italian-American history where art, history, culture and traditions come to life!
The birth of America, the growth of its cities, the success of its industries, and the strength of institutions we cherish today are each a part of the Italian American story.
Learn about and participate in Italian-American customs, traditions, and culture! Sing opera, create art, play music, learn to make Italian cuisine, speak Italian and so much more!
There are no upcoming events.
Join us today and put your passion to work! We have numerous opportunities for volunteers to get involved.
