The proposal for the Irish American Museum in Washington, DC is to fund, build, stock, staff and endow a Museum in America’s capitol, in order to recognize and honor the history and contributions of the Irish in America. The Museum will serve as a repository for the artifacts and memories of the Irish in America, and will collect written and oral histories from Irish Americans.  Audio, visual and written materials will be published to document and teach the history and contributions of Irish in America. The museum will honor all those who claim Irish and Scots-Irish ancestry.
