The Greenbelt Museum is a partnership between the City of Greenbelt and the Friends of the Greenbelt Museum. The City of Greenbelt owns and operates the Museum, and the Friends of the Greenbelt Museum (FOGM), a 501(c)3 not for profit organization supports the Museum through fundraising, a membership program, strategic planning, and by serving in an advisory capacity. Thank you in advance for your generous donation. Donations are tax deductible.


The Museum is entering a new era as we expand into the house next door to our restored home. 10A Crescent was purchased by the City of Greenbelt in early 2016 and now we are in the process of transforming the space from a residence to a state of the art Visitor and Education Center. We need your help to get there!
