Somalis + Minnesota

Experience artifacts, photos, and stories of Somali history from baadiye to Mogadishu to life in Minnesota today. Runs June 23, 2018 — June 9, 2019 at the Minnesota History Center

See this new exhibit on Somali history and culture, developed in partnership with the Minnesota Historical Society and the Somali Museum of Minnesota, which houses a collection of more than 700 pieces and offers a wide range of educational programs about Somali traditional culture at the museum and throughout the region.
The exhibit will showcase 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.

Visit an Aqal Soomaali — a reconstructed nomadic hut imported from Somalia.

Learn about Somalia's history through a rare collection of photographs and objects, brought to life through commentary by Somali historians now living in Minnesota.
Meet Somali Minnesotans from across the state through videos and interactive photo panels.
