Sandy Spring Museum

Sandy Spring Museum Sandy Spring Museum is a place where people can develop meaningful connections by exploring community history through visual, literary and performing arts.
Sandy Spring Museum interprets Montgomery County's rural heritage, exploring the community's long tradition of leadership in social justice (anti-slavery and women's rights), technology and agriculture, transportation (C&O Canal, B&O Railroad), commerce, politics, and civic life. Through exhibits, programs, publications, and education, the Museum welcomes visitors of all ages to learn about and learn from a community that, though rural, was never isolated.

We are a place where people can make connections to community history through the cultural arts. We are community-activated cultural arts center. We have events that promote engagement with the community. We have exhibits that feature interaction, unique character or subject, and artists that take a step outside the box. We also have nearly a dozen artists in residence, a historical archive and library on site.

Mission: Sandy Spring Museum supports community-driven cultural arts and educational programs. We gather community to build a sense of place and belonging.
