New Americans Musuem

Dear friends,

I am delighted to announce the reawakening of New Americans Museum in San Diego!

Rediscover a museum that is not a collection of artifacts, but rather a gathering of living ideas and ideals...of life-affirming narratives shared by brave individuals who left their homelands to create their future in a new land seeking peace and opportunity.  Their memories of courageous and often dangerous journeys begin, each one, with their indomitable will to take charge of their lives and their future who, unwilling to accept the status quo, would rather confront the unknown, drawn forward by the shining beacon of freedom--our United States of America. 

Please join me as we welcome 2015.

Deborah Szekely, Founder & President


For centuries, America has beckoned to immigrants the world over. With courage and determination they have traveled thousands of miles to rejoin loved ones, for economic opportunity, or simply to know freedom.

As a nation of immigrants, America has benefited from an infusion of talents and skills that are the foundations of many rich traditions. In the civic, economic, and artistic arenas, yesterday's newcomer is tomorrow's pioneer in a continuing process that defines us to this day.

The preservation and presentation of the immigrant experience in the United States is a central commitment of the New Americans Museum's mission. We are dedicated to insuring that individual stories are safeguarded in the Family Histories Essays and Oral and Visual Histories archives as enduring testaments to our immigrant roots as a culture and a nation.

New Americans Museum is an international destination; a place like no other, where all who have journeyed to this great country are celebrated for their resilience, their cultures, heritage, and the myriad of contributions they have made to our nation. New Americans Museum  aims to foster public awareness of the values and strengths that immigrants bring to our nation.
