Living History and the Relevant Museum

Part Three: How to Create Relevance in Your Living History Program

Living History is more than costumed characters lecturing about the past or old-time activities. Join us for a three-part series that covers how Living History works, how to appeal to new audiences, and how to define it at your site. Fort Vasquez Director Bill Armstrong illuminates how the Living History technique is changing, where and why it can work for you, and how this educational model can add value to programming at your site. The first session will cover identification and methodologies of what makes Living History effective.
