MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO/AP) — A new Twin Cities museum is showcasing Somali art and culture.
The Somali Artifact and Cultural Museum opened Saturday and features paintings of nomadic life and photos of Mogadishu along with traditional rugs, ancient writing tablets and lots of items made from animal skins.
“It’s so much more than Civil War, and pirates, or famine. There’s so much richness to the culture,” said Sarah Larssen, the Museum Outreach Director. “So to get to come and see what traditional life was like is pretty amazing.”
