About the Milken Center for Advancing the American Dream   

On July 4th, 2023, the Milken Center for Advancing the American Dream will open its doors in Washington D.C. to visitors from around the world. Our Visitor Center, based in beautiful and historic bank buildings across from the Treasury Department and the White House directly on Pennsylvania Ave, will contain interactive exhibits and state-of-the-art technology focused on the dynamic story of the American Dream. But in 2020, long before its physical doors open, the Center will launch an online community and gathering place. Our online Center will host virtual exhibits, inspirational and educational programming, exciting research about economic and social opportunity, and global competitions. 

Unlike traditional museums, the Center will focus on shaping the aspirations, mindsets, and skill sets of those who visit and participate, both online and in-person. The ideal at the heart of the American Dream speaks to the aspirations of people everywhere: No matter who you are or where you come from, you should have the opportunity to build the life you want to live. Our purpose is to make the American Dream an attainable reality for people everywhere— across America and around the world.

That’s why we focus on expanding access to Four Pillars that support the American Dream, providing the tools that equip people to transform dreams into realities:

•          education and job training

•          good health

•          financial health, and

•          entrepreneurship and innovation.

The Center’s success will be measured by the extent to which visitors are empowered and equipped with the skills, resources, knowledge, and inspiration necessary to build a fulfilling and secure life for themselves and their families.
