Highlights from the Collection

“We are small in numbers, but large in heritage.”

Armenians are an ancient people, with a rich complex history and culture spanning 3,000 years. In 1971, community leaders founded the Armenian Museum of America in Watertown. Today Watertown is the “Little Armenia” for generations of Armenian-Americans.

This gallery’s exhibition displays only a small sampling from the vaults, carefully selected by the Museum’s curator, board, and staff. The works displayed are some of the finest in our collection.
