Stopped here with my Italian wife on our way through Albany. We got to the door only to realize it wasn't open on the day we came, rang the doorbell anyway and were surprised to be welcomed in for a tour. Received great personal attention and spent a quiet few hours making our way through the stories and collections in the various themed rooms. I'd be surprised if there's anyone of Italian descent who isn't moved, educated, and/or inspired by a visit.

We got a history lesson and tour from the Professor who was the founder of the museum. He was friendly, helpful, and knew everything! The parking was easy, museum was clean, full of so much information and so many items to view. Small place packed with so much.. Loved it all!

We visited this small, but jam packed museum early in the afternoon on Saturday May 25, 2019. The museum presents an intricate look into the emigration of the Italian people. The building is a converted church with the museum taking up the main floor. The second floor has office space used by museum staff. The museum was originally located in Utica, New York. the display area is broken into then major rooms with each room having a different central theme. The docent on duty at the time of our visit was very cordial and readily engaged us in dialog. We spent almost two hours viewing the displays. Our opinion is that this museum is a hidden gem.

We visited this museum while looking for things to do in Albany. What a find! The museum is small, but it's packed with memorabilia of the history of Italians in America. And there are some very knowledgeable organization members to guide you through the well stuffed rooms. Lots of pictures, lots of documents, lots of art work, and lots of conversation with the very friendly volunteer staff at the museum. We would have stayed longer, but the museum hours are fairly short and we had already kept everyone there past closing time with our barrage of questions. It was time to let them go home.

We had some friends visiting on a rainy weekend and since my wife had wanted to go to this museum for some time, decided to go. This is because she knows a woman who has two sculptures in the museum. All the items in the museum are donated and all the people who work there are volunteers, who like telling you about the museum and exhibits, and encourage you to join.The museum honors the Italian immigrants who came to the US and seeks to preserve their memory. Since we are descendants of immigrants, although not of Italian heritage, we found this an interesting and welcoming museum.

Response from Philip D, General Manager at American Italian Heritage Museum
Responded May 23, 2018
We thank you for taking the time to make your kind remarks. No matter your heritage, I think our museum shows the trials and tribulations of the immigrant experience and that their story is of interest to most people. I am happy to tell you that many of our members who volunteer are not of Italian descent. All of our members are part of our Museum family
