Pride Day at the Museum


We're thrilled at the Museum to host a day celebrating the LGBTQIA+ community. All are welcome! We hope you'll join us for free tours of the Museum's historic house, a craft for kids, information on how to be an ally, and more. We'll also be giving away mini Pride flags, while supplies last!


The Museum's historic house features furniture designed by the federal government to fit Greenbelt homes, artifacts and objects used by a middle-class family during the years 1937-1952. We also have hands-on items for kids including a rotary phone, a typewriter, vintage View Masters, and more. We'll be offering quick tours during this event (approximately 10-15 minutes) but we encourage you to return for a more in-depth tour on an upcoming Sunday during regular hours 1-5pm.


Greenbelt was founded during the Great Depression, a time when families couldn't necessarily afford toys or games for their children, so many kids of the era entertained themselves by making things out of what they could find. In this tradition, we'll be making paper rainbow chains out of construction paper. Free, while supplies last, no registration required!


We'll also have information on hand about how to be an ally to the LGBTQIA+ community.


ABOUT THE GREENBELT MUSEUM

Greenbelt, Maryland is a National Historic Landmark planned community built in 1937 as part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal. Greenbelt was designed as a cooperative garden suburb that would be a model of modern town planning in America. The Greenbelt Museum invites visitors to experience Greenbelt’s beauty and rich history through tours of an historic home, award-winning exhibits, public lectures, educational programs for children, and walking tours of the historic town. The Greenbelt Museum’s historic house is open for tours on Sundays from 1pm to 5pm except for major holidays.
