Bowie enjoys a rich and diverse historic and cultural heritage, which offers an opportunity to explore our past and better understand our future. With these goals in mind, the City of Bowie has restored and maintains several historic sites. 

The City of Bowie operates the Belair Mansion, the Belair Stable Museum and the Bowie Railroad Station, and Huntington Museum, their collections and exhibits.

The city joins with the Radio History Society to present the National Capital Radio and Television Museum.

The Museum staff is assisted by The Friends of Belair Estate and the Huntington Heritage Society, as well as the Radio History Society and the Prince George's County Genealogical Society, in this mission.
