What a lovely genuine experience to tour this original house from the era, our friends once lived in this community and it was great to understand the concept behind this community.

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.

Lots of things to see from early Greenbelt days. I like that you can contribute items so others can enjoy them. Friendly staff.

The museum is quite small as it fits into one unit of the homes built as part of the green cities program of Roosevelt's New Deal. The home is furnished in period furniture, much of it items that were original to the community. The office/interpretive area/gift shop is in the former garage so it is quite cramped. However, everyone who... More

My husband and I are always looking for weekend day trips and happened upon this museum while googling for something to do on a unseasonably temperate day. Only 20 or so minutes from our home, we decided to give it a try. Honestly, our expectations were not high as we only think of Greenbelt as home to NASA Goddard Space... More

The greenbelt museum is actually pictured in the lower right. We spent an afternoon listening to historical information from the two great hosts of the museum. Then you get to tour one of the small homes in this historic area. It might be a small museum but it has some great advantages over some bigger ones. More personal attention and... More

Stop b this museum and see if you have what it takes to live in a little home. And by little I mean approx 700 sq feet. Many still do in a planned community that this museum is located in. Ask questions, listen to stories from seasoned homesteaders. Ikea could learn a thing or two about design after touring our... More

If you have a few hours to spend in the area this museum is well worth the time. Even though it is scheduled to be open only Sunday afternoons I contacted the staff and Stacy was very accommodating. We met on Thursday morning and she provided me with so much information about the New Deal time… Her Dad was one... More

We did'nt realize that the actual museum is only open from 1 -5 P.M. on Sundays, so we really did not get to see it. However, we did visit the Greenbelt Community Center which was sort of interesting and has exhibits about how this was a planned community during the 30's as part of the New Deal plan by FDR....
