The Arab American National Museum (AANM), a project of ACCESS, is the first and only museum in America dedicated to telling the story of Arab Americans. The AANM has the responsibility and unique capacity to foster better understanding and appreciation of Arab Americans and the Arab world. The museum’s exhibits and programs are responsive to and reflective of the Arab American community; serve the diverse population of our nation; dispel stereotypes and misconceptions about
Arabs, Arab Americans, and other immigrants; and help all ethnic groups recognize their shared histories, experiences, and interdependence. In its short history, the AANM became an Affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution. In 2008, the museum was the recipient of a Coming Up Taller Award given by the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities. The AANM is a founding member of both the Immigration and Civil Rights Sites of Conscience Network and CultureSource. In 2013, the AANM achieved accreditation from the American Alliance of Museums.
