The Smithsonian's Anacostia Community Museum will be closed for renovations from March 15, 2019 through mid-October 2019. The renovations will include enhancing the museum’s accessibility, parking and main entrance. The popular "Right to the City" exhibition on gentrification has been reproduced into satellite exhibits on view in DC Public Library branches in Mt. Pleasant, Anacostia, Woodridge and Shaw. The Southwest exhibition will open late in the Spring and the Chinatown location is to be announced. See below for public programs on the exhibits and on museum initiatives are being hosted by the Library and other partner organizations. 

The Smithsonian Anacostia Community Museum challenges perceptions, broaden perspectives, generates new knowledge, and deepens understanding about the ever-changing concepts and realities of ‘community' while maintaining its strong ties to Anacostia and the D.C. Metropolitan region. The Museum's changing exhibition schedule explores themes in family and community history. Unique to this institution is the inclusion of community perspectives in the exhibition process and content.
