I would like to donate a spear and a bloody machete to the museum.

"Ali also learned that the long-running civil war had taken its toll on the national museum in Somalia, scattering many of its artifacts across the world.“When I came to know that people forgot everything, then I started to collect,” he said.“I started from a very narrow place but it took me to an ocean after that.”

He went on local radio and TV stations in Somalia and announced the museum project.

So far, he has shown his collection at local libraries and schools.

He said he hopes to rent space at the Midtown Global Market in Minneapolis to house the collection until a permanent site can be found."
