In Honor of the Italian Immigrants Who Came to the United States of America
The American Italian Heritage Museum is operated by the American Italian Heritage Association. Founded in 1979, we have become an international organization with members in 36 states and four nations!: Canada, Italy, China, and the French West Indies. Our goals are to record and preserve our Italian heritage and culture.
The AIHA operated the Italian Cultural Center & Museum located at 668 Catherine Street, Utica, New York (Utica's "Little Italy" - east side of the city) 1985. It was closed late in 1998 so that plans for the new national museum in Albany, NY could begin.
