Smyrna Summer Memories

 The Smyrna Museum is seeking photograph submissions for our new exhibit running July through September.

Showcase your own memories and add to our exhibit!

We are accepting submissions of photographs portraying summer activities that highlight our area. Photographs should show a fun “memory” that occurred in Smyrna, Clayton, Smyrna Landing or Woodland Beach.

From family afternoons at the lake, backyard barbecues, parade involvement, fishing on the pier, dogs running on the beach and summer gardens to historical architecture and old family photos. We want them all!

Submission Guidelines:
Please include the name of anyone pictured, location and date of photograph, along with current contact information if you would like your submission returned at the end of the exhibit.

Photographs for display will only be accepted in person at the Smyrna Museum (11 South Main Street, Smyrna Delaware) during our normal open hours on Saturdays from 10 am – 1 pm.
