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.

Around the Museum

The museum offers a variety of programs to our museum visitors throughout the year. Check out our current series offerings and look for events on the museum calendar. Museum admission is required for many of the program unless otherwise noted.
