Through this project we want to collect and share our collective memories of the historic Keep Fort through the ages, from being part of a working Dockyard to a derelict site, to becoming the Bermuda Maritime Museum and to today as the National Museum of Bermuda. What’s your history with the Museum? Were you a volunteer, an intern, a visitor, a staff member? Did you visit with family and friends? We want to capture your memories and see your photos!
