Anacostia Community Museum exhibitions focus on a range of topics and issues facing urban communities today. Exhibitions invite and motivate visitors to bring their diverse knowledge, experiences, and resources to the viewing experience. The creative use of museum collections, exhibit design, and innovative interpretive methods acknowledges audience diversity and encourages visitors to think critically about exhibition subject matter.

The museum's approach to exhibition development is based on direct collaboration with communities, and on working directly with residents, members of neighborhood organizations, artists, community activists, planning organizations, scholars, local officials, local businesses, and families.
