Here, David Allison, who has worked at several museums known for effective enactments, provides the fascinating stories of three large living history museums as they adapt to changing audience expectations; a solid overview of the types of interpretation that living history museums use; best practices (and practices for you to avoid) from the reams of data and studies compiled by evaluators over the past 10 years; an exploration of the intersection of public history, individual agency, and business imperatives at museums and historic sites. Connecting with Guests in Museums: Living History Techniques Then and Now looks at the history of these compelling techniques, provides best practices and strategies for implementing them today, and provides a roadmap for the future of costumed interpretation.
