“Buyers also have the opportunity to make an additional donation to the Museum when making their purchase. As a non-government and non-for-profit organisation, NMB relies on admissions, venue hire and the generous support of donors to fund all operations.”

Katie Bennett, NMB Advancement Officer said: “By purchasing one of our resident sheep in miniature, you support our exhibitions, the conservation of artifacts, restoration of historic structures, publications, education programming, and archaeology.

“Donations also allow us to continue to make admission free for all local students and schoolteachers and children under 16. These ornaments and keychains are perfect Valentine’s gifts for loved ones, and you’ll be supporting your National Museum, too”.

“NMB’s flock of resident sheep became ambassadors of the Museum on social media during Bermuda’s month-long lockdown in April, increasing NMB’s social media reach by over 400% with their daily antics,” the NMB noted.

“The flock, who are on loan to the Museum thanks to local farmer Richard Bascome, are four-legged lawnmowers and fertilizers. They inspired two successful online appeals in 2020, including “Sheep-scape/Keepsake” in which donors were asked to help name the resident sheep. To view the named sheep, visit here. The ornaments and keychains are made by local artisan Lama Handmade BDA.”
