- About Us
The Anacostia Community Museum strives to make collections materials available to scholars and the interested public. Photographs and other digital surrogates are available through a keyword search in the "Search our Collection" box on the right. If online resources provide insufficient information, staff may be able to provide additional information or access to the original material. Please note that we are sometimes restricted by the condition and current storage location of our collections. Access is available to researchers by appointment.
To request access to items in the object collection, please email ACMcollections@si.edu. Your email should provide a description of the item, the object number, and the reason for your request.
To request access to materials in the archives, please email ACMarchives@si.edu. Your email should provide a description of the item, the collection number, and the reason for your request..
The Anacostia Community Museum does not accept unsolicited donations to the collections. If you have an item or archival collection that you think the museum might be interested in, email ACMcollections@si.edu.
