Penn Branch Neighbors ‘Meet Up’ for Group Tour at Smithsonian Anacostia Community Museum (ACM)


Big museums tell the national story and our community museums tell our local stories…

On Saturday, February 25th about 25 Penn Branch neighbors met at the Smithsonian Anacostia Community Museum (ACM) on Saturday, February 25th for a special group tour of their exhibition., “The Utopia Project” The exhibition explored how communities around the world effectively found creative ways to improve their environment and affect power.

The tour was led by ACM Executive Director, Dr. Melanie Adams. At the end of the tour she invited each our our neighbors to use a printed “DreamBook” to add ideas and collect inspiration to design own ideas for positive change.

We look forward to visiting our community museum again next year!
