2017 Lecture Series

Next lecture July 20, 2017

Stay tuned for more information! 

Join us Sunday, June 4 for the Grand Reopening of the Museum’s Historic House! 


The 2017 Roosevelt Ride kicks off the day beginning at 10B Crescent at 11am. The annual vintage-themed bike ride will start from the house and return there at the end of the ride. We'll have a few supplies for bike decorating, also. Bring a picnic and join us on the lawn!  Or pick something up from the Greenbelt Farmer's Market. Don't care to ride? There will be a free walking tour leaving from 10B Crescent, as well. 


Vintage clothing encouraged, but optional!  Need ideas? Visit the Museum's Pinterest Board!  


There will be a ribbon cutting at 1pm and the house (now fully restored from water damage!) will be open for free tours until 5pm.

We’ll serve light refreshments and have hands-on activities for kids of all ages! This event is free and family-friendly! Sponsored by the Friends of the Greenbelt Museum

Read more about the event in the May 18th issue of the Greenbelt News Review.  Have questions? Give us a call at 301-507-6582.
