The Greenbelt Museum’s Historic House, located at 10B Crescent Road, is open for guided tours on Sundays from 1-5pm. No reservations are required, but we do recommend that you arrive no later than 4:30pm. 

The house has been restored and furnished with objects from the period of 1936-1952.

The furniture on display was designed by the Resettlement Administration’s Special Skills Division and made available to early Greenbelt residents. The house also includes objects associated with everyday life of a middle-class family during these years such as Fiesta ware, Depression glass, kitchen utensils, children’s toys, clothes, and linens. Tours of the house provide visitors with a view of home life for ordinary Americans of modest means during the Great Depression and World War II.

Getting Here & Parking

For directions, click on the Google Maps on the right. Free parking is available in the parking lot of the Public Library across the street and some street parking is available. Free parking is available across the street from the Museum's historic house behind the public library and adjacent to Greenbelt Community Center. 

 

Accessibility

If you or someone in your group has physical, cognitive, or mobility challenges, please call ahead and we will be happy to help. 

 

Why are we only open on Sundays? 

We are a small organization and rely heavily on volunteers to help us keep things running! At present, Sundays from 1-5 pm are the only hours we are able to staff our site with knowledgeable guides who can show you the Museum house. We are expanding, however, and look forward to being open more hours once the expansion is complete.

 

If you are unable to come on a Sunday or would like to bring a group or book a walking tour, please get in touch with us. We are happy to book tours throughout the week. For more information, visit our Group and Walking Tour page, give us some information about what kind of experience you're looking for, and we'll get back to you!
