 1  Arab American National Museum

The Arab American National Museum is the first museum in the world 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. The Arab American National Museum is a proud Affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. and the only Smithsonian Affiliate in southeastern Michigan to date. As such, the AANM may borrow artifacts from the Smithsonian’s 36 million-piece collection and access its education and performing arts programs, expert speakers, teacher workshops, and technical assistance.
