When built, the National Museum of the American People will celebrate the histories of Americans from all backgrounds and cultures and will help to educate visitors not only about their own story but about the stories of their friends, colleagues, neighbors and all of the citizens of our nation. To bringthis museum closer to reality, Congress needs to pass H. Con. Res. 63, the bill that calls for a Presidential Commission to study the establishmentof this museum.

The Museum will tell:

  • Who all these people were that came to this land and nation
  • Where they came from
  • Why they left their homeland
  • How they got here
  • Where they first settled
  • Who was already here
  • Where they moved after they arrived
  • How they became Americans
  • How they transformed our nation

 

Take a look around at your fellow Americans, they all have a story of coming to this land and this nation. What's yours?

Help us build the most important museum that doesn't exist … yet.

Remember- no federal tax dollars are being sought to plan, build or operate this new national museum.

Sign our petition and email your congressman and make sure your story is told!

      I support the dream of Sam Eskenazi. As a museum educator I can see the possibility of this type of museum facilitating a larger awareness of our country's beginnings.
