About the Museum and Park: The park and museum honor Benjamin Banneker –scientist, astronomer, mathematician, abolitionist, surveyor, farmer, almanac publisher– on the site of his former farmstead. We offer a diverse array of educational exhibits and environmental programs as well as trails, and horticultural demonstration areas.
