About NWHM

February 11th, 2009

The National Women’s History Museum (NWHM), founded in 1996, is a nonpartisan, nonprofit educational institution dedicated to preserving, interpreting, and celebrating the diverse historic contributions of women, and integrating this rich heritage fully into our nation’s history. Until legislation passes in Congress designating a permanent museum in Washington, D.C., the NWHM promotes women’s history through its temporary exhibits, special events, Cyber Museum, and online educational materials.

    Is there a building already on the site chosen for the NWHM and if so is there a reason that the Federal Government (or legislator who)is not in favor of putting the museum on that site?
