History: The Lewis Museum Permanent Collection
The Lewis Museum has over 400 years of history in its permanent collection. Take a journey through Maryland African American history in the areas of industry, politics, leisure activities, sports, media, the arts, education, the military and more.
The 82,000 square feet of space isn’t just for people to come and stand and look at what’s on the wall or exhibit. It’s for us to come and interact and use.
