Located two blocks from Inner Harbor in Downtown Baltimore, the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History & Culture – a Smithsonian Affiliate – documents, interprets, and preserves the complex experiences, contributions, and culture of Black people. The Lewis Museum serves as a catalyst of sustained change by providing robust programs and exhibitions and bold conversations that educate and challenge. We strive to be a trusted custodian, a respected authority, and a thought-partner on the history, art and culture of the African diaspora with an emphasis on the State of Maryland. Founded in 2005, the 82,000-square-foot facility accommodates over 13,000 square feet of permanent and temporary exhibition space, hosting more than 11,000 objects in our permanent collection, special exhibitions, educational programs, and public events. Our Values: We operate with integrity and excellence We prioritize learning We are socially responsible in all of our activities We approach all of our work with a sense of pride and respect We create meaningful partnerships We emphasize the importance of intergenerational community
