National History is Tremendous – Local History Matters too!
Exploring national history is tremendous, but learning about local African American heroes and sheroes is just as impactful. As you are planning your holiday schedule with family and friends, enjoy a day at the museum learning about local African American History and Culture. The Prince George’s African American Museum and Cultural Center has a series of exhibits and tours for the entire family to enjoy! Schedule your tour today or stop by during our Gallery hours: Tuesday-Saturday – 10am-5pm.
Sharing Our Stories: Treasures From the Museum’s Collection is an exhibition featuring art and artifacts from the Museum’s collection. The exhibit features a variety of donated objects since the Museum began its collection program in 2011. Through this program the Museum has collected over 1,000 objects including the call letters from Radio One’s headquarters building when it was located in Prince George’s County to the papers of an African American Soldier in World War I. At its core this exhibition is a collection of stories and objects about the rich history and culture of Prince George’s County and its residents.
Footsteps from North Brentwood is an exhibition about Prince George’s County’s oldest African-American incorporated town. The exhibit was presented by the Smithsonian’s Anacostia Museum in 1996 and features information, documents, pictures, interviews, and memorabilia about the history of North Brentwood. The exhibition was donated to the Museum in 2010 and the content of the exhibit was organized by the North Brentwood Historical Society.
