Hidden Gems: Italian American Museum of Cleveland

Italian Americans have played an influential role in Northeast Ohio's history, through business, arts, and even politics. Now, in one of Cleveland's most iconic neighborhoods, Little Italy, stands a new showcase to some of the many ways Italian American's can be found in Cleveland's rich history. From photos, to tools, to decades old keepsakes, this small but mighty museum tells the story of Italian Americans as they made their way through life in Northeast Ohio.

Myra gets a private tour from the museums' curator and director, Pamela Dorazio Dean, who has an extensive background with Cleveland's very own, Western Reserve Historical Society. This museum has given a home to many artifacts and put them on display for the first time. This museum shows that there is always more to learn and discover about Northeast Ohio.

Nestled right between Little Italy's many bakeries and restaurants, this museum is a must see for all!
