Did you know the Arab American National Museum turned 10 years old this month? We’ve had 10 years of fascinating exhibits and exciting events in our building, and we are celebrating this whole year! Learn more about our many upcoming events on our 10th anniversary page.
Our Grand Opening in 2005 was a huge event. We literally closed down the street to accommodate the party that happened out our front door. So to celebrate our anniversary here on the Curatorial Blog, I thought I’d share some images of the opening from our institutional archives. If you were at the opening ten years ago, let us know what you remember in the comments. We’d love to hear from you!
