At this time in our nation's history, it is critical that we bring all Americans together to confront global challenges facing the nation. The Museum will be the embodiment of that proposition.
The National Museum of the American People will become the best history museum anywhere. It will tell one of the greatest stories in human history about peoples assembling from every corner of our globe to become a people and to build a nation that leads the world economically, militarily, scientifically and culturally.
People from every American nationality, minority and ethnic group will come to the Museum to see their own's group's story and to learn the stories of others.
Foreign visitors will come to learn about natives of their countries who became Americans.
The National Museum of the American People will celebrate all of the peoples who came to this land and this nation, from the very first to the most recent, and tell the dramatic and compelling story about their migration and immigration to these shores and the story of their subsequent migrations within the country.
