Repairing The Somali Museum Of Minnesota

UPDATE
Thank you for your generous support. 
With the help of kind volunteers and staff, the Museum was able to move most of the artifacts to a secure storage. When we can, we will be bring back the artifacts to display them. This process is going to take significant time and effort. We still need your support!

Thank you to everyone who has reached out and offered their support. Thank you for all the prayers and love. The unity of our community has always been our driving force. As leaders in the community and preservers of history and culture, we are hurt by the murder of our brother George Floyd. We empathize with the anger and the pain of our community. The unjust killings of our black brothers and sisters has to end.  We pray that everyone stays safe during this time, we pray that Allah protects the protesters fighting for justice. Our building is one of the ones affected, some of artifacts lost, others damaged in the gift shop, but Alhamdulilah we are all safe.

Founded in 2011, the Somali Museum of Minnesota opened its doors to the public in 2013 as North America's first and only museum devoted to Somali culture. At last update, the Somali Museum of Minnesota is the only museum of Somali culture anywhere in the world. The Somali Museum is the home of Somali creativity in North America, and is a global leader in advancing and elevating the work of Somali artists, traditional and contemporary. Help us rebuild, so we can continue to work for the community.
Thank you, May Allah reward your generosity.
