The Palestinian Museum is an independent institution dedicated to supporting an open and dynamic Palestinian culture nationally and internationally. The Museum presents and engages with new perspectives on Palestinian history, society and culture. It also offers spaces for creative ventures, educational programmes and innovative research.

Research grants announcement
In fulfilment of its 2019-2023 programme strategy, the Palestinian Museum (PM) launches its first programme of research and civic engagement.
