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. They include but are not limited to book launches, literary events, symposia, panel discussions, workshops, tours, film screenings, an exhibition related conference, and two original publications to document the annual discursive and scholarly outputs, as well as conference proceedings and papers. The research programme aims at driving civic and intellectual engagement, producing and disseminating knowledge about Palestine, and filling knowledge gaps about Palestinian history and culture.
