Explore Somali culture, from traditional life in Africa, through the massive migration that began in the 1990s, to today’s large, well-established Minnesota Somali community. This exhibit was developed in partnership with the Somali Museum of Minnesota.

On opening day, celebrate with free admission to the museum, activities for the entire family, and a chance to meet friends and neighbors during a Sambusa Saturday while enjoying a sambusa and Somali tea. Activities are offered through 3 pm and include performances by the Somali Museum Dance Troupe, poetry, storytelling, weaving demonstrations, book signings of Soo Fariista/Come Sit Down: A Somali American Cookbook, film screenings, and an art project to take home.

Free admission is provided by the Knight Foundation and 3M.
