  • Great experience, attended as part of an assignment for Cultural Anthropology. Our professor is actually the Directors of Education Programs here. As a movie buff, I particularly enjoyed the "in Entertainment" section! The building is filled with beautiful art and imagery. If you have an opportunity to take a tour or visit the gift shop take a look.
  • $8 dollars admission and just $4 for student, which make it so affordable. It's nice collection of books instruments, and things of Arab, but very little. I think they have plenty of things to added here. Second floor have belonging of American Arab when they came here. You could check all the museum in hour -2 hours I'd say, and 4 dollars to enjoy seeing these collections are worth it.
  • Small museum packed with information. The staff was friendly, answering a question I had for a class assignment. There were multiple interactive pieces, pictures, audio, artifacts, etc. Student price was $4. Cute gift shop.
  • A must see for anyone interested in the journey of Arab Americans, an immigration story that dates farther back than most people think. The rotating exhibits, performances, and movie screenings are fantastic and pertain to current events. The permanent collection is text-heavy, so give yourself plenty of time. My favorite is the letters exchanged between a young Jordanian woman and her parents after she informs them she is in love with an American man and asks for their blessing in marriage. Read the Arabic original text if you can as it is heartwarming; the English translation is pretty good too.
  • Very informative and friendly in a beautiful modern building ... park in the back ... enter in the front. I am so glad I finally made time to visit! As a non-Arab, I have always been curious about Islam and the Middle East, and this museum is perfect place to gain an understanding of those questions. I recommend following the phone-guided tour at your own pace. The staff was very friendly and helpful with my questions after my visit too.
