Isten Hozott! Welcome to our new home!

The afternoon was sunny and bright. The Galleria sparkled as it welcomed visitors to the Grand Opening of the Hungarian Heritage Museum. Inside the Museum members of the Board and volunteers were busy finishing their tasks preparing for the guests: plating Hungarian savory snacks, lining up champagne bottles, assembling touch screen computers, setting up chairs, attaching a red, white and green ribbon to the door. 3 p.m. was coming up soon.

The new space needed some serious remodeling, along with new library shelves, and some modern electronic equipment to enhance our exhibits. We were able to procure these updates through a generous grant form the Hungary Initiatives Foundation. After months of unpacking boxes, assembling exhibits, arranging window displays, gift items and shelving books, the Museum was ready for her debut on the First Floor of the Galleria in Downtown Cleveland!
