About Arab American Museum        About Arab American Museum

The Arab American National Museum (AANM) is the first and only museum in the United States devoted to Arab American history and culture. Arab Americans have enriched the economic, political and cultural landscape of American life. By bringing the voices and faces of Arab Americans to mainstream audiences, we continue our commitment to dispel misconceptions about Arab Americans and other minorities. Since opening in 2005, the Museum has shed light on the shared experiences of immigrants and ethnic groups, paying tribute to the diversity of our nation.


The Arab American National Museum documents, preserves and presents the history, culture and contributions of Arab Americans. 


In alignment with AANM's commitment to creating an arts sector rooted in justice, we are 
committed to ensuring a space that is free of racism, transphobia, homophobia, Islamophobia, ableism, misogyny, classism or other bias. We also encourage freedom of expression and we aim to create a brave, generative space. Our expectation is that all guests will honor these ethics. 

This statement has been graciously shared by the National Performance Network, of which 
AANM is a partner.
