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 from 10 am-5 pm, 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.
