Ararat-Eskijian Museum (“The Museum” or “AEM”) aims to share the rich history, culture and heritage of the Armenian people through preservation and education.
The Museum implements its mission through the display of artworks and cultural artifacts, research archives and annual educational programming.
Over the past 25 years and still today, AEM:
Collects paintings, photographs, textiles, ancient artifacts, books, coins, and maps
Encourages the community to contribute historical artifacts and actively participate in the preservation of family history and experiences
Sustains programs of research, exhibits, education and publication
Contains a library (which concentrates on materials concerning the 1915 Genocide of the Armenian people)
Provides a cultural center that presents interpretive exhibitions, literary events, musical programs and public lectures
The doors of the Museum are open to all who aspire to learn about the history and cultural traditions of the Armenian people, carried on by those who survived and witnesses the horrors of the Armenian Genocide, 1915-1923, their descendants as well as scholars and historians over the past century. We offer displays, lectures, programs, books, and films to bolster education around Armenia and the Armenian Genocide.
