Here at the H.A.R.P. Museum at the Irish Cultural Center of the Mohawk Valley we hope to promote understanding and appreciation of the legacy of the Irish people who settled in the Mohawk Valley. We wish to present their many contributions to the area and to our lives.
We’ll do this through educational events like lectures, classes, concerts, and practical demonstrations. We’re also developing collections of tangible objects, artifacts, documents, records, diaries, recordings, photographs, and more.
We also will provide the capability to genealogical research, as well as a reading/reference library of Irish-themed books, tapes, CDs and movies.
We’re covering the waterfront here at the H.A.R.P. Museum… in fact, the acronym stands for “History, Ancestry, Research and Programs.”
