Making sites and communities come alive is the focus of this one-day workshop. The workshop includes instruction on how to tell the story of your site or community, understanding interpretive methods and how to attract and engage visitors. Examples of various forms of interpretation will be given. Participants will learn how to choose appropriate interpretive tools – such as brochures, driving tours, walking tours, museums, exhibits, audiotours and tour guides—and will discuss plans for their own interpretive projects.
The Heritage Tourism Program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation offers a variety of workshop formats that are customized to the needs of the client.
