Italian American Museum of Los Angeles

The Italian American Museum will be located in the Italian Hall, a historic building in downtown Los Angeles that was constructed in 1908 to serve as a social and cultural center for the Italian community.

Located in what was once the core of the city’s Little Italy, the Italian Hall was the site of countless events such as weddings, banquets, meetings, rallies, concerts and dances.

Today, the Italian Hall is the oldest surviving structure in Los Angeles built specifically for Italian occupancy.

When the historic significance of the Italian Hall became evident in 1988, the Italian community organized a group to secure use of the Hall and raise funds to develop a museum. The Historic Italian Hall Foundation was incorporated in 1993, and in 1998, was granted a 501 (c) 3 exemption as a non-profit organization.

The Italian American Museum will feature historical and art exhibitions, an oral history and research archive and a multi-media center. The Museum will serve as a mixed-use facility, hosting lectures, festivals, meetings and a variety of community events. It will be cooperatively administered by the Historic Italian Hall Foundation and the City of Los Angeles.
