Our mission is to bring cultures and people together to build bridges of understanding.
Formed in 1992, Salaam Cultural Museum is one of Seattle’s oldest cultural organizations. It was founded to educate about the Middle East and North African (MENA) region by first serving as a community center, then became a touring museum. It has since grown to include humanitarian aid to those affected by conflict in the MENA diaspora. Its mission is to build bridges of understanding in the Pacific Northwest.
The Museum plans to exhibit the MENA collection from the Zawaideh Foundation, along with renowned regional and national artists in its permanent and temporary galleries, as well as an outdoor sculpture garden. We hope to open in the Central District in 2021 to welcome local, national, and international visitors.
Plan A Visit
We are currently a touring exhibit planning our permanent home. We are hoping to be located in Seattle in a space that will allow us to put our collection on permanent display, host temporary exhibits, host cultural events and provide educational and cultural resources to the community.
Once we have secures our permanent location we will post information and updates here.
Our office is located at 3806 Whitman Ave N, Seattle WA 98103.
