1900 18TH ST NW, WASHINGTON, DC 20009, US

Mission Statement

We share the rich history, vibrant arts & culture, and spirit of the Palestinian people.

Description

The Museum of the Palestinian People is the first museum in Washington D.C. devoted to exploring and celebrating Palestinian history, arts and culture. It started in 2015 as a traveling exhibit, visiting over 50 locations across the country, and has now found a home in the heart of the nation’s capital. By sharing the stories of the Palestinian people with those who walk through our doors, we invite the world to discover what unites us all.

The museum:

  • Shares Palestinian stories through historic artifacts, personal narratives, and artistic expression to transcend separation, fragmentation, and boundaries;
  • Connects Palestinians in the United States, Palestine, and the diaspora with each other to evoke pride and dignity, and to impart this to future generations; and
  • Partners with other institutions and connects with broader audiences committed to our shared humanity.
