DC Digital Museum

The DC Digital Museum offers a rich collection of over 800 items - including photographs, original film clips, and documentaries - that chronicle the history and culture of the District of Columbia. The website is maintained by the Humanities Council of Washington, DC, which has been building its collection since its establishment in 1980. Site visitors can conduct a text search for items, browse items by subject tags, or explore the collection through an interactive map, where archives are geographically organized. The DC Community Heritage Project features materials that were part of an initiative to enlist individuals and communities to collect items - including high school yearbooks, interviews, and toys - that highlight the city's history. The diversity of artifacts displayed at the DC Digital Museum gives the site a broad appeal. For instance, history instructors will find primary documents while youth workers will find resources about engaging youth with community history. Members of the general public interested in the past and present of our nation's capital will also enjoy this abundant collection.
