True to its name, Maryland Humanities is committed to bringing outstanding humanities programs to every corner of our state. Museum on Main Street (MoMS) helps fulfill that promise. A collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and state humanities councils like Maryland Humanities, MoMS brings high-quality traveling exhibits to Main Street museums, historical societies, and other small-town cultural venues across the country. These exhibits boost civic pride, as residents young and old, from diverse backgrounds come together to share and celebrate their heritage.

Six Maryland communities have been awarded the opportunity to bring the Smithsonian traveling exhibition to their town. Marylanders will dive into the next Smithsonian traveling exhibition May 25, 2019 through March 8, 2020.
