German-American Heritage Museum of the USA™
Frequently Asked Questions
Our museum exhibit space is approximately 1,200 square feet, and it consists of a mix of our permanent exhibit showcasing the journeys of German-speaking immigrants to the United States, and changing temporary exhibits. The topics vary widely, ranging from the German roots of Hollywood to Jewish lawyers during the dark time of Nationalsocialism to biographies of Black Germans in the past and present.
We cannot really tell you how much time you should spend here, as it depends on your schedule and your interest. Some people just stop by for a brief visit, while others stay an hour or more reading the timeline, watching reenacted history on one of the multiple TV sets, and learning about modern-day Germany beyond the popular tourist destinations. The good news is that you can always come back.
