“Neat Place to Visit”
Reviewed May 19, 2012

With Dearborn, Michigan housing the largest Arab population outside of the Middle East, the Arab American National Museum is a natural fit. It's a great place to learn more about the culture and some famous Americans of Arab descent. You won't be spending the day here, but it's worth the short trip to spend an hour or two.

“small but informative”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

enjoyed this visit to this museum. Despite the small size of the exhibit, I did learn many new things and gained new appreciation. I enjoyed the exhibits of common household items and history of Arab immigration into our country. After the museum, we headed to the local grocery store behind the museum and stocked up on spices and foods not readily available in our area.
