The Palisades Museum of Prehistory is a private museum in Washington DC promoting the awareness and preservation of prehistoric artifacts in the Palisades of Washington DC.

It is little known by most residents that humans have occupied what is now the DC metro area for at least 13,000 years. In particular, the Palisades of Washington DC has an especially rich prehistory because of its proximity to the Fall Line and its strategic location atop an ancient river terrace overlooking the Potomac River.

As Director of the museum, I give tours of the collection, as well as provide lectures and travleling exhibitions. Over the summer, I lead an archeo summer camp for kids 12 and younger.
