Smithsonian Anacostia Museum

Accessible for people with disabilities


The Anacostia Community Museum Archives (ACMA) opened in 2001 in the Smithsonian Institution’s newly renovated Anacostia Community Museum, founded in 1967 as the first federally funded neighborhood museum and located in the historic Anacostia section of Washington, D.C. The archives unit collects, preserves, and makes available materials supporting the object-based collection and the research and educational activities of the museum, as well as the museum’s mission which is centered on contemporary urban communities.
