“The museum uses personal artifacts, skillfully distilled reminiscences and absorbing interactive displays to recount the tale of Arab immigration and accomplishment since the late 1800s. … It makes for a lively museum experience.”
- The Wall Street Journal

Project Description:

Spearheaded by the Arab Community Center for Economic and Social Services (ACCESS), The Arab American National Museum highlights the many contributions that Arab Americans have made and continue to make in the United States.

JRA worked with ACCESS’s network of experts to develop the story line, experiences and displays for the museum’s permanent exhibit. The exhibit is organized in four sections: Arab contributions to world culture; “Coming to America”, which tells how Arab Americans from a variety of eras came to live in the U.S.; “Living in America", which talks about the customs, traditions and day-to-day experiences of Arab Americans representing a range of ages and occupations; and “Making an Impact", which celebrates the contributions of Arab Americans in areas ranging from arts and entertainment to science and politics.
