Family scrapbook poster

Be Part of the Story

What old photographs do you have at home of your family? Which ones hold stories and memories that you would like to share? Posed, candid, professional, or amateur family photographs are all welcome!

Your stories and memories can highlight the history of the people who are in the photograph and the historical events that might have touched their lives.

See yourself, your family, and your loved ones on the walls of the Museum! Your historic photographs and stories will become part of an exhibit at National Museum of Bermuda.

Open to anyone who currently lives or has lived in Bermuda.

“History is a tapestry comprised of millions of individual stories and Bermuda Family Scrapbook offers us an opportunity to uncover the many threads that make up our Island’s diverse history. The more stories that are shared, the more vibrant and vivid our picture of Bermuda’s history becomes and the better we understand ourselves and each other.” — Dr. Deborah Atwood, NMB Curator
