“Great museum for those interested in town planning or the New Deal”
Review of Greenbelt Museum

Greenbelt Museum
Ranked #5 of 10 things to do in Greenbelt
Attraction details
Reviewed November 12, 2008

The town of Old Greenbelt was the first of four "green towns" planned by the federal government as part of Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal plan to get the economy going again during the Great Depression. Eleanor Roosevelt helped lay out the town. This museum is in one of the original Old Greenbelt houses--a small townhouse furnished in 1930s style with exhibits about the town's construction and lifestyle then. If you're NOT interested in urban planning, art deco architecture, life in the 1930s, or the New Deal, you may not find much here to enjoy. It's within walking distance of the town center with a Community Center with more exhibits, as well as restaurants and a movie theater.
