Washington DC History Resources

Matthew B. Gilmore

Just how many museums are there in Washington DC?

69 =/- really. See: https://matthewbgilmore.wordpress.com/2015/09/25/washington-dc-museums-a-complete-list-for-museum-day-2015/ )

Data (faulty) from IMLS (Institute of Museum and Library Services) suggests about 200. Click DC_Museums for a spreadsheet extracting just those in DC. That’s about 1 museum per 3,100 people.

All the  IMLS data is here: IMLS Museum Universe Data File

{Note: for Museum Day 2015 I compiled a list of all museums and art galleries in the District of Columbia. See: https://matthewbgilmore.wordpress.com/2015/09/25/washington-dc-museums-a-complete-list-for-museum-day-2015/ )

Purpose: The purpose of the Museum Universe Data File is to provide a list of known museums in the United States.
Coverage: The Museum Universe Data File (MUDF) contains information about over 35,000 museums in the United States including aquariums, arboretums, botanical gardens, art museums, children’s museums, general museums, historic houses and sites, history museums, nature centers, natural history and anthropology museums, planetariums, science and technology centers, specialized museums, and zoological parks.
How will the data file be maintained?
This database will undergo periodic review and updates. IMLS encourages the public to examine the database and to contact the IMLS research staff if there are institutions that should be added or entries that should be deleted. IMLS is accepting comments at research@imls.gov.

Max Van Balgooey critiques the data here: IMLS’ Count of Museums in the US May Be Exaggerated

    Good post, and the data is certainly interesting. But the last one (#226) for sure is in Maryland, and a similar entry for the same institution further up is now almost 3 years out of date. The data quality question isn’t going away, for sure.

      Part of the reason to publicize this…get the data cleaned up. I hope the organization will reach out to IMLS and do it.

      If you look at the whole dataset you can see a Delaware museum was recorded under “DC”… That one I removed.

    Yes, and the DAR Museum has been at 1776 D St, NW for nearly 125 years, never on L St.

      As I show there’s 69 plus or minus museums in DC — not 225 counted by junky IMLS data.
