Across the country, museums and historic sites welcome visitors into a world long gone but fundamental to America today. Military history in particular is etched into our country’s culture and the public’s imagination. The trouble, though, for museums and historical sites lies in continuing to make it both accessible and relevant to today’s audiences.

Utilizing material from his Rowman & Littlefield book Interpreting American Military History at Museums and Historic Siteshistorian Marc Blackburn of Mount Rainier National Park and the America at War Podcast introduces ways to tackle the various components of American military history, providing alternatives to the traditional museum experience.

Blackburn will share strategies for making stories and collections relevant to modern audiences. Armed with these strategies, history organizations will have the foundation to provide compelling, relevant, and engaging experiences for audiences.
