Description

Join a guided tour of the Polish Museum of America to learn about the rich history of Polish contributions to the growth of America and of the Polonia community within Chicago as we celebrate Polish American Heritage Month with the Chicago Public Library.

One of the oldest and largest ethnic museums in America, the Polish Museum of America (PMA) is dedicated to preserving the Polish American past for future generations. The Museum showcases a unique permanent collection as well as temporary exhibits and sponsors workshops, programs, and films to preserve Polish folk arts, customs, and traditions for all generations. PMA Archives preserves historic materials, documents, maps, and photographs from Polish and Polish American individuals and organizations. The PMA Library holds over 100,000 books for research and lending, as well as collections of Polonica, rare prints, and periodicals. Founded in 1935, the PMA celebrates almost 90 years of service to the community. The PMA strives to fulfill its mission: to promulgate the rich cultural history of the Polish people by collecting, preserving, interpreting, and displaying materials related to this heritage; and to integrate these resources into appropriate programs, activities, and exhibitions that enrich the intellectual and artistic lives of all members of society.
