Summary

We are the only Historical Museum in St. Thomas. Our mission is to identify, protect, and perserve the history, sites and culture of STT. Our museum sustained damage during the two Category 5 hurricanes: Irma and Maria. We are working to clean and restore the historical artifacts,photographs and archives we currently have in the museum.

Challenge

St. Thomas is facing a lot of challenges in the aftermath of these storms. As a non-profit we rely on donations to continue our work in the community. Our museum was flooded and damaged during the storms and is currently closed for clean-up. One of the main challenges is continued funding to support our efforts.

Solution

The people of St. Thomas as well as the positive impact we have on tourism will benefit from our clean up efforts in order to open the museum to the people of the Virgin Islands. Funds will be used to restore the museum, artifacts and continued staffing to open the museum for residents,students and tourists.

Long-Term Impact

It is important that the island has a venue to pass on the history and culture to future generations. We serve the children of the islands, giving tours of the Museum, Hassel Island and downtown St. Thomas in order for them to learn about their history and culture. The museum is also an important part of the tourism industry of the Territory - which many residents rely on as their source of income - and downtown revitalization for the general enhancement of the island.
