Discover our holdings! The Anacostia Community Museum’s collection documents urban communities and the lives of urban residents, from home life and everyday activities to the community-building efforts of artists, activists and others. Holdings reflect a tremendous diversity of experiences, perspectives and achievements in the Washington, DC metropolitan area and other cities nationwide. We are continously adding more material as our imaging and cataloging work continues, so check back often!
Our collection is enriched through interaction and conversation with community members and researchers who share knowledge, insights, experiences and musings. We are committed to making our holdings and associated resources as accessible as possible, and we welcome your comments.
