Lithuanians in Philadelphia
 

In 1907, the Lithuanian Music Hall opened in the Port Richmond area of Philadelphia as a place where Lithuanians could gather. For more than 100 years, it has been a cultural hub for the Lithuanian community in Philadelphia, a place for gatherings such as concerts, cultural evenings, art exhibitions, meetings, commemorations, weddings, and dances. 


The hall continues to house a library and cultural center that documents the Lithuanian American experience in Philadelphia and the coal mining towns of Pennsylvania. The collection includes books, records, artifacts and music dating back as far as the 1890s. 
Our facilities are used for folk dance practices, choir rehearsals and various community meetings. A permanent folk-art exhibit is on display.

With the ownership of the Lithuanian Music Hall officially transferred in 2021 to the Lithuanian Cultural Center, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, an exciting future lies ahead.
