AANM offers high-quality educational and culturally enriching guided tours of our exhibits. Guided tours provide groups with a first-class look into our exhibits and uniquely engaging lessons on Arab American history, art and culture. We aim to tell visitors the diverse stories of Arab Americans and insert them into the larger context of American history.
In addition to tours of our exhibits, AANM offers a wide array of options and programming to customize your experience, including presentations and cultural competency workshops, film and discussions, lunch, hands-on learning and other cultural and art-based activities. We aim to be as flexible as possible when creating your educational experience, and welcome all individuals interested in a guided tour or any other educational programming.
All AANM educational programs are designed in accordance with the Michigan Department of Education’s K-12 grade level content expectation standards in Social Studies, English & Language Arts and World Languages.
For any questions about tours, please contact Dave Serio, Educator & Public Programming Specialist, at dserio “at” accesscommunity.org
Guided tours for groups are available either in-person (starting March 2022) or virtually. Tours are available for school groups, organizations, businesses and anyone interested in taking a journey through our galleries.
Virtual tours, just like in-person tours, allow guests to view our exhibits in real-time, engage in activities and ask questions to our Education team.
For in-person tours, we have put measures in place to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all our guests. Please review visitor guidelines on our Visit page.
