Everyone loves a good story, and local history organizations sit on a treasure trove of great stories. Learn how to find real, compelling stories within your history and collections and how to present those stories in ways that make your history more relevant to your visitors and your community. We consider what makes a good story and how objects and stories work together for powerful museum experiences. We also discuss telling difficult stories and ways of providing multiple perspectives in the stories you share.
