We have speakers, workshops, and resources available!

Telling the stories of Ukraine and the Ukrainian American experience and connecting generations through exhibitions, archives, and educational programming.

The UHEC museum permanent collection consists of over 15,000 objects of folk art, fine art, religious ritual objects, textiles, and icons, as well as objects that document Ukrainian and Ukrainian American cultural, religious, and political history. The UHEC Archives holds hundreds of collections documenting the lives and work of Ukrainian and Ukrainian American individuals, families, organizations, and parishes.

The Mission of the UHEC is to foster a vibrant connection between past and future generations and communities to Ukrainian history, sprituality, arts and culture through educational programming, exhibitions, workshops and conferences and to provide access to researchers and educators to the permanent collections of the UHEC's Museum, Archive and Library to further their knowledge or develop curriculum for other learning institutions.

The Vision of the UHEC is to be the source for advancing knowledge and understanding of Ukrainian history, spirituality, arts, and culture through dynamic programming and exploration of our rich heritage. The UHEC will be a showcase for Ukraine's enduring relevance in world history telling the stories of the Ukrainian community.
