2017 International Somali Awards
in London, UK
On March 15, 2017, Founder Osman Ali accepted the Innovation Award at the 2017 International Somali Awards in London, UK. The award was presented by Rt. Hon. Earl Howe, Deputy Leader of the House of Lords & Minister of State for Defence of the UK. This honor was made possible by the votes of supporters from around the world who shared their support for the Museum.
While there once was a national history museum in Mogadishu, the precious cultural inheritance of the Somali people is rapidly disappearing. Minnesota is home to one of the world's largest Somali diaspora populations, and the Somali Museum serves youth and elders to preserve, celebrate, and cultivate a new future for Somali culture worldwide.
