Muslim Cultures

A museum exhibition and related public programs exploring how cultural traditions, faith, and history have shaped the lives of Muslims in the United States and internationally.

The Children’s Museum of Manhattan (CMOM)--a leading provider of cultural and educational experiences for families since 1973--respectfully requests a grant of $400,000 from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH)'s America's Historical and Cultural Organizations program to implement an ambitious and important new museum exhibition and educational programming series entitled, "Muslim Cultures." The goal of "Muslim Cultures" is to expand Americans' knowledge of the diversity of Muslim cultures and the role of Muslim societies as active participants in the global flow of people, ideas and materials. Utilizing a wide range of humanities resources, this project will be the first of its kind to explore the breadth and depth of Muslim cultures worldwide for a family audience in the United States. The request to the NEH is for a 24 month period of final design, exhibit fabrication and installation, education programs and evaluation (August 2013-July 2015)
