It is always good when children visit our Museum

The second Saturday of December has traditionally been the Children's Program at the Cleveland Hungarian Museum. Over the many years that we have hosted this event, hundreds of Hungarian-American children have had the opportunity to learn about their Hungarian heritage by playing games, listening to stories, working on Hungarian themed crafts, repeating words, and welcoming Mikulás Bácsi (Saint Nicholas) to the Museum. December 9, 2017 was another day for all the children who attended our annual Children's program. The older youngsters participated in a program designed especially for them, while the younger children enjoyed learning through hands-on activities.



Mark your calendar for another wonderful Vintner Dinner on October 20, 2018!

Come join us at the Canterbury Golf Club, as we taste great Hungarian wines, while enjoying good food and company.

2017 Vintner Dinner

This year's Vintner Dinner was a resounding success! We savored delicious Hungarian wines from top quality boutique wineries located in the best wine-growing regions of Hungary; we enjoyed an excellent dinner at the Canterbury Golf Club; and we had many nostalgic moments listening to the wonderful musicians of Harmonia. What a great evening to celebrate the Museum! Friends of the Museum enjoyed tasting 5 different wines, bidding on lovely items on our auction and raffle table; but mostly, they enjoyed each other's company, meeting old and new friends throughout the evening. This year's honoree for the Vintner Dinner was the Hungarian Association, Magyar Társaság, which celebrates 65 years of spotlighting issues that affect Hungarians throughout the world, while promoting Hungarian culture, arts, literature, and scientific achievements, through their annual Congress held over the Thanksgiving weekend.
