Join Hmong Museum’s 2nd Annual Gala!

A special night of fun celebrating Hmong Museum’s anniversary.

Our theme this year is Cultivate. We believe that each of us have the ability to cultivate something beautiful, but only if we do it together. By cultivating and growing the Hmong Museum we can create a central location to preserve our culture, language, and artifacts that will last for future generations.
