Help Us Record History in the Making - How Is COVID-19 Affecting You?

How has your life been impacted by coronavirus and/or COVID-19? We want to hear from you. We join many local history museums in collecting stories, photographs, art, and more from people in our communities who are being affected by this devastating pandemic. If you would like to share your experience, or have photos of signs in and around Greenbelt, artwork, or examples of people helping one another, we'd love to hear from you. We'll work on sharing these submissions on our website and they will become part of our permanent Museum collection. Send an email to or fill out out our online form

Please Note: By contributing your story or photo to us you are making an unconditional donation of the material to the Greenbelt Museum/City of Greenbelt. The Greenbelt Museum reserves the right to keep, lend, or otherwise dispose of the donated material, and may use the material on our website, for social media or other postings, in promotional materials or in future exhibits. 

Do you have photos like this one? We welcome your submissions documenting life in Greenbelt during the pandemic.
