The Armenian Museum of America, Inc. was created to locate, collect, preserve, and present the culture, history, art, and contributions of the Armenian people during the past 3,000 years. The Library holds a vast collection of titles including rare books, historical and literary publications. The Museum has amassed an expansive treasure trove of inscribed Armenian rugs and textiles, ceramics, metalware, Urartian objects, medieval illuminations, ancient and medieval Armenian coins, and various other creations by the Armenian people.

These collections now constitute a major resource for Armenian Studies and for preserving and illustrating the Armenian heritage. The Armenian Museum is the only independent Armenian museum in the Diaspora which is funded solely through contributions of individuals.
