The Museum serves as the regional center for folklife-related activities in Montgomery County, Maryland. We support folk artists and their communities as a means toward empowerment and self-determination.

We value collaboration at each stage of our work. We receive generous funding from the Maryland State Arts Council and work with Maryland Traditions to identify, document, and support the diverse communities of Montgomery County.

Our work is anchored in the partnerships we hold with folk artists and their communities. Learn more about our Folklife Partners below.
