Hmong life this moment in history
Help us to capture and archive the Hmong experience by sharing your own story.
Hmong Museum is the first and currently only museum dedicated to the preservation and education of Hmong culture, history, experiences, and arts. We do this through the creation and collaboration of programs that:
As a volunteer-based organization, nearly every dollar goes into our programming.
As a start-up, we do not have a physical location, instead we partner with local cultural organizations to bring engaging inter-generational programs to the community. The Hmong Museum exists to recognize and acknowledge the intersections of all things Hmong. This includes the documenting of arts, history, folk tales, personal and family histories, traditional knowledge, current issues, and many more.
WHO ARE THE HMONG?
The Hmong are an ethnic group from Southeast Asia, some of whom ended up in Minnesota as refugees after 1975 when the Vietnam War ended. The Hmong were allies of the Americans in Laos and fought in a “secret war.” When the war ended many Hmong soldiers and civilians were relocated to the United States and other allied countries.
