ON EXHIBIT NOW:

IMMIGRANTS OF NORTHPORT AND EAST NORTHPORT 

Immigrants of Northport and East Northport opened on June 6th, celebrating the immigrants that helped build and continue to contribute to our community. The exhibit marks our grand reopening since the start of the COVID-19 and will run for one year. It features people who took the risk to come to the land of opportunity seeking prosperity, freedom, and happiness. We will host events inspired by the exhibit, including our Taste of Northport series and lectures at the Museum. Check the events page regularly for updates or sign up for our newsletter to stay up to date.

Curator Terry Reid has interviewed Michael Dowling, the President and CEO of Northwell Health, Northport resident and Irish Immigrant, about his childhood in rural Ireland.

Clips of their discussion are available here

We've converted one corner of our gallery into a history reference library that harkens back to the time when our building served as the Northport Public Library.
