The Somali Artifact and Cultural Museum is the home of traditional Somali arts in our state.  Displaying a collection of over 700 pieces and offering educational programs about Somali traditional culture, the Museum gives an opportunity for Minnesotans of all backgrounds to learn about Somali traditional culture.

Somali Cultural Classes will engage youth ages 5 to 18 as a response to community requests for culturally-relevant educational experiences. SACM plans to build a storytelling curriculum that mixes poetry and songs that will teach participants about the Somali language and culture.
