Description

The Greenbelt Museum opened its doors in 1987 as part of Greenbelt’s 50th anniversary celebration. The Friends of the Greenbelt Museum formed a non-profit corporation and restored an original Greenbelt row house that was purchased by the City of Greenbelt to be a museum. The Friends of the Greenbelt Museum, Inc. (FOGM) supports the educational activities of the Greenbelt Museum. The Greenbelt Museum allows visitors to experience the New Deal planned community of Greenbelt, Maryland, by offering tours of an historic house, creating interpretative exhibits, walking tours, lectures, and other educational public programs. The Friends of the Greenbelt Museum support and operate the Greenbelt Museum in partnership with the City of Greenbelt. The City of Greenbelt employs a full-time Curator/Director of Historic Programs and the FOGM supports a paid volunteer coordinator. The museum is currently raising funds for an endowment with help from a challenge grant from the NEH that will support a full-time education/volunteer coordinator.
