A long view of the little understood contributions that Arab Americans have made over the millennia with special emphasis to counter the backlash that many Arab Americans unjustly experienced after 9/11. Very through and well mantained.

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.

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
