THE MUSEUM IS NOW
CLOSED FOR WINTER
REOPENING MAY 2018
A RICH COLLECTION OF LOCAL & REGIONAL HISTORY
Built in 1958 by Bedford residents to commemorate construction of the original French & Indian War fort in 1758,
Fort Bedford Museum houses over 4,000 objects from Bedford’s past.
For 57 years, the Museum displayed its entire collection as many museums once did: in rows of wood and glass cases.
In 2015, the Bedford Heritage Trust began a five-year plan to renovate and update Fort Bedford’s exhibits, collections management practices, and educational programming. If you haven’t visited us lately, come see what we’ve done!! Two new interpretive exhibits—Becoming Bedford and Cave to Empire—are now open, and we’re planning a major celebration for 2018: the Museum’s 60th and original Fort’s 260th anniversaries!
