Museum seeks to document Virginians’ virus stories

What all of us are going through in response to the COVID-19 pandemic will one day be looked back upon as history. And the Virginia Museum of History & Culture in Richmond is looking to collect that history now as it is happening.

The Virginia Museum of History & Culture is seeking to document the impact of the virus in the commonwealth through your stories.

“While we can’t preserve everything, we are interested in collecting stories, observations, images, sound files, or moving images as quickly as possible,” a release stated. “Over time, we hope to collect objects, diaries, documentaries and more.”

The museum will be taking digital submissions throughout the COVID-19 health crisis. A selection of material submitted through this form may be shared through VMHC social media accounts. Ultimately, a representative sampling of submitted materials will be preserved at the VMHC for future generations.
