The Hellenic Cultural Museum, sponsored by the Hellenic Cultural Association, emphasizes the personal aspect of the Greek immigrants to Utah and their descendants. The Greek presence in Utah dates back as far as 1870.
The Museum reflects the live of early Greek immigrants -- their struggles, achievements, social life and tragedies. Displays include a Mining Exhibit, which illustrates early coal and metal mining in Utah; religion; photographs, movies, videos, tape interviews, recordings, costumes, dolls, old letters, military service, manuscripts, early mining tools, artifacts from Greece, and much more.
The Museum Gift Shop specializes in hard-to-find books and cultural objects, souvenirs, tapes, Greek language instruction tapes, recipes on Greek cooking, videos, histories, etc.
