In addition to our exhibits (both permanent and changing), we offer a wide selection of films and videos for viewing. Arrangements can be made to have a storyteller entertain your group with portrayals of the lives of Benjamin Banneker, Mary Banneky and Molly Banneky. We also offer a designated eating area and a gift shop available for your enjoyment. Reserve a tour for your students today and to learn about:
