Washington D.C.’s Mall is the home of many of the city’s finest museums, housing works of the masters at the National Museum of Art, historic aircraft at the Air and Space Museum and America’s Native heritage at the American Indian Museum.
But one man saw that something was
missing: Amir Muhammad couldn’t find a museum that showed Islam’s
history in America. So he started digging. His results - including
photos, artifacts, and displays - have become America’s Islamic Heritage
Museum and Cultural Center in Southeast Washington, DC.
