I visited during the Greenbelt Labor Day Festival, when they had a special county fair exhibit. Knowledgeable docents who were very informative. Great to learn the Greenbelt story.

Most people have no idea what a cutting edge and innovative community, historic Greenbelt, Maryland is. Thus museum tells the story of the city's interesting and storied past. Not a large museum, but a terrific place to spend a couple of hours and discover what a fascinating town this really is.

The museum is a living tribute to The New Deal and the Roosevelts. There's a museum, which is one of the original homes decorated as it would have been when it originally opened. There is also a tour of the area, which was wonderful. The docents are residents and well-versed in the history of the community.
