Living History Museums and Historic Sites in the United States
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The concept of 'living history', a popular interpretation technique, can take many forms, from military reenactments to skill, craft, and trade demonstrations presented by guides and interpreters dressed in period clothing. This book provides the first extensive directory of living history exhibits, programs, and events. It contains descriptions of nearly 600 institutions that use living history to make their exhibits more enjoyable, educational and historically relevant, from houses, plantations and villages to decommissioned battleships, battlefields, trading posts and settler/military forts. All entries include a brief description of the site, an overview of its living history exhibits and programs, and, when available, contact information, fees and hours.
