I am a non-Arab, but definitely enjoyed seeing Arab American history. I like the fact that the ticket price is not that high (8 for adults, 4 for kids). They can definitely improve by making the museum more interactive. The staff was super nice.

Hiding in a line of commercial buildings in the middle of Michigan Avenue this jewel of architecture. The beautiful mosaic facade stands looking conspiratorially at the City Hall Artspace across the street. Inside the museum you can see artifacts and information about the Arab world...More

And by beautiful, I mean the history, the culture, the museum, and the exhibits. I popped in unexpectedly (curiosity finally beat out grocery shopping!), and I was surprised that Dearborn doesn't do a better job of enticing visitors to the Museum. There is so much...More

This is an older review, from several years ago. I'm a Dearborn resident, and think this museum is an excellent way to learn about the Mideast influence in the Detroit area. So many simply criticize people of different ethnicity, just because they are different, without...More

The Arab-American museum is of interest to anyone who is fascinated by the history of U.S. immigration. The museum provides a great overview of Arab history and contributions to world culture, and then focuses on the impact of Arab-Americans in the U.S.

The people are nice and friendly and they offer an educational discount. It is a 2-story building. The history spans several centuries and it is interesting. The second-floor exhibits were about specific people’s lives - interesting also.

The emphasis here is more on the process and experiences of Arab Americans coming to this country and their contributions once they settled than what they left behind in their homelands. It had a number of informative and educational exhibits which help you understand the...More
