Our Mission

Traveling museum exhibit.

Salaam Cultural Museum (SCM) is a charitable non-profit organization originally formed in February 1996 to gather and publish information on the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and to promote understanding of the people, cultures, languages, religions, and lands of this region. We provide teaching tools to school teachers, a speakers’ bureau, loan cultural artifacts acquired by our founder to events and museums promoting cultural awareness, host cultural events and more.

In 2020 we hope to complete a long-time dream of opening a physical location to house and display our collections, hold cultural events, and promote understanding and awareness.

  5. Hello
    I would like to begin collecting supplies of warm clothing, blankets and other needed items for the Syrian host centers and camps. The issue for me, located in New Jersey, is getting items there. I am wondering if you know of other organizations in the New York/New Jersey area that are making regular shipments to the region? If so, I would greatly appreciate this information.
    Thank you for all your work.
