MCBF has awarded a $1,500 grant to the above organization for its “The Museum To Go” program.  This program will extend the museum’s community outreach efforts to serve underserved children and their families in Baltimore City and Baltimore County.  There is an overwhelming number of school groups who want to visit the museum but do not have the resources to provide admissions cost and/or transportation.  In partnership with other funders and the Museum, MCBF grant funding, will allow more school groups to visit the museum, a target audience that the museum needs to strategically engage.  It will help to implement outreach efforts to each respective school system, creating relationships with superintendents, principals, teachers, parents and other educational organizations to visit the museum with free/reduced admission and/or bus transportation to explore Maryland African American history and culture through the museum’s lesson plans and permanent exhibits.  The museum seeks to engage all cross sections of society through scenic dialogue about the community and the people that live in it.  In order to fulfill this mission, the museum feels it is extremely important to engage citizens at an earlier age and to build stronger bonds with local education systems.  For more information on this program, or other programs, at the Lewis Museum, go to
