Collecting COVID

In May 2020 we launched an appeal to collect images, first-hand experiences and objects that reflected Island life during the COVID pandemic.

The ‘Collecting COVID Isle of Man’ project has enabled Manx National Heritage to record and document the human dimension of the pandemic as experienced on the Island and will enable future generations to learn about and understand our experience.

Since the project launched we have had over 150 individual submissions, including over 500 photographs, journals, first-hand accounts and objects which reflect the impact of COVID on our Island community.

The project is now closed to new submissions, but if you would like to discover more about ‘Collecting COVID Isle of Man’ please email
