Historic Bethlehem Museums & Sites

In association with the Smithsonian Institution


Collections Gallery

Gift of Bethlehem Steel Corporation

Historic Bethlehem Museums & Sites is home to over 60,000 artifacts.  Our most sensitive objects are housed in our new 5,000 square foot Collections Resource Center at the Kemerer Museum.

To the left and below is a sample of photos donated to HBMS from Bethlehem Steel Corporation that were featured in the Bethlehem Back When exhibit.


We are able to share photos like these through the generosity of donors. We hope you will consider becoming one of these generous individuals in this unprecedented time.

We need your help now more than ever to preserve this history and share these stories.

  • Help preserve and share these stories: Receive a postcard book of historic images of Bethlehem when you donate $125 or more.
  • Donate while sheltering in place: Make a gift and share one of your fondest memories of Bethlehem in the comment section of the donation form! HBMS will be featuring these shared memories on this page.
We hope you will consider making a contribution today. Your support means more now more than ever.

Thank you!
