Memberships are the backbone of the Arab American National Museum, helping turn our community-based museum from a novel idea into a solid reality.

Thanks to our Members, the challenges of the global pandemic have not stopped us from sharing the history, arts, culture and contributions of Arab Americans. Since March 2020, AANM expanded its national and international reach through virtual platforms, providing over 150 online events – at least 95% of which can be attended at no cost. Our Members help to sustain free in-person and online programs that bring people together and build bridges of understanding between our community and others.

Your Membership guarantees your favorite exhibitions and programs will be better than ever. You will be able to fully enjoy many of the Member benefits, listed below.

For more information or questions about Membership, please contact Zahraa (Zaza) Saad, Development Officer, at zsaad “at” or (313) 429-2535
