The Future of History

At the National Museum of Bermuda (NMB), we are committed to ensuring that learning Bermuda history is part of every educational journey on Island. Central to this vision is expanding museum education offerings and outreach while providing future generations with opportunities to research Atlantic World history at NMB. To accomplish this agenda, we launched The Future of History Campaign in 2020: a historic fundraising effort to usher the Museum into a new era.

Our multi-year Campaign (January 2020–December 2022) set out to raise at least $8.5 million to support a new vision for the Museum as a vital educational resource and steadfast community partner while also elevating our Atlantic World research and thought leadership.

At the campaign’s close on December 31, 2022, we raised $9.8M+ through the exceptional generosity of individuals, families, corporations, and foundations. We are humbled by the generosity of our donor community and their commitment to our mission. Our impact and the Museum’s future are stronger and more promising than ever.
