We learn more about historic Collins House – the future home of the National Museum of The Bahamas – and the preservation of historic sites and monuments. Director of the Antiquities, Monuments & Museums Corp., Dr. Keith Tinker, and Owen Bethel, Deputy Chair, Historic Bahamas Foundation, tell us about plans to establish a national museum system, with the Collins House site serving as system’s hub.
Bethel also tells us about the Foundation’s inaugural fundraiser; as an homage to Collins House, the historic estate will play host to “A Swinging Soirée”, a 1920s jazz-themed cocktail gala. Attendees are expected to include, Dr. Bernice King, daughter of US civil rights activist Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and John Franklin of the US Smithsonian Institution. Tickets for the February 1 event are $150. For more info, log on to ammcbahamas.com
