Organization Overview

The International Museum of Muslim Cultures (IMMC) educates the American public about Islamic history and culture.


IMMC is a cultural hub in the process of transforming from a regional destination to an institution with national impact. Housed in the Mississippi Arts Center in downtown Jackson, IMMC is building on 21 years of programming and relationships with community partners: the City of Jackson, Jackson public schools, and institutions of higher education, including Tougaloo and Millsaps colleges. In 2021, IMMC was honored to win two awards: USA Today named IMMC #4 among its 10 Best Readers’ Choice Awards in the category of religious museums. And StudioBasel was awarded a Golden Award of Montreux (Switzerland) for their design of IMMC’s exhibit Muslims with Christians and Jews: An Exhibition of Covenants & Coexistence. In 2022, IMMC is excited to partner with the City of Jackson to pilot A Beloved Community Integrated Transformation Project, which includes the development of IMMC’s online academy and a robust online presence.
