Museum of the Palestinian People (MPP) is opening its doors on June 15th!

Join us for this historic event as we celebrate the launch of the first Palestinian People’s museum in the nation’s capital. MPP is opening our doors wide for the world to encounter Palestinian stories; stories that encompass the rich history, vibrant arts and culture of a people who thrive even in the face of adversity..

The grand opening ceremony will take place Saturday, June 15th from 2pm to 3pm. Following that, the museum will be open to the public. A limited number of free tickets are available to the public for the opening weekend from 3-7pm on June 15th and 12-6pm on June 16th through Eventbrite. Reserve your ticket to make sure you can tour the museum on the grand opening weekend. Donations are welcomed!

MPP’s opening exhibition, Re-Imagining A Future, features a diverse display of artwork by Palestinian artists from the United States, Canada, the West Bank, Gaza. The exhibit includes pieces of music, paintings, and collages work by artists Ahmed Hmeedat, Manal Deeb, Mohammad Mussalam, Dalia Elcharbini, and Haya Zaatry. The works were inspired by a survey that MPP released,  receiving hundreds of responses from Palestinians throughout the diaspora. The inaugural exhibition invites visitors to explore a new and as yet unimagined future for Palestine and the Palestinian people, casting a sense of hope and possibility. Re-Imagining A Future is an act of imaginative courage and creative resistance.

Beginning, June 20th, the museum will be open from 12pm to 6pm, Thursday to Saturday. Groups of 10 or more that are interested in visiting the museum at other times should contact info@mpp-dc.org.

We look forward to creating a new future together.

In Solidarity,

Museum of the Palestinian People
