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 our physical closure in mid-March, AANM has opened its doors to a national audience, providing over 100 online events – at least 95% of which can be attended at no cost. Each week, our Members help us bring free extraordinary programming to hundreds of homes across the country. By becoming a Member, you can ensure our programming remains free and accessible for the remainder of this pandemic.

Your Membership guarantees that when we reopen our doors – and we will – your favorite in-person 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 Nissrine Hussein, Development Officer, at nhussein “at” or (313) 842-4748.
