The Reginald F. Lewis Museum celebrates the achievements of African Americans, especially those from Maryland—which often means expanding on grade-school history lessons. For instance, Betsy Ross is typically credited with making the first American flag. However, one of the museum's rotating exhibits reveals that Grace Wisher, an African American indentured servant, also worked on the original star spangled banner. Dubbed "For Whom It Stands: The Flag and the American People," that exhibit was recognized as one of the country's best in the summer of 2014 by USA Today—in part because it featured a scrap of the real, first flag, covered in the bald eagle feathers that filled the air back then. That's just one of the myriad rotating exhibits that the museum has hosted, to complement permanent collections that highlight Maryland African Americans' endurance through two centuries of slavery, and their artistic and intellectual innovations.

Films in our theater have enriched audiences on the history of soul food, civil rights, and more. For families, programs like art workshops and living history bring our mission to life. Lectures and our resource center enrich what you'll find in our permanent collection. We also nourish the body with the best soul food in Baltimore at our museum cafe.

Customer Reviews

The art and artifacts were thought provoking. It was especially insightful to discover the history of African Americans in Maryland and the contributions to the state. The exhibits are definitely worth the money. I recommend going alone or with a friend or two max if you can. Planning time to chat afterwards over coffee is a great way to spend the evening.
