It’s mid-April, which takes me back to my days of working as an interpreter at historic sites. At this time of year the buildings are cleaned, last minute minor repairs are performed, kits of clothing and props are issued and inspected, and all of this is done to prepare for the public. Of all the aspects of the summer season of working in history, I most likely enjoyed anticipating meaningful interactions with visitors.

What are your looking forward to most for the 2009 summer visitation season? What are you doing right now to prepare for the summer season?

One Response to Season Opener

  1. I am looking forward to planning new events and increasing traffic to our museum. Not only are we re-landscaping the grounds, but we are making plans for new exhibits and costumed intrepretation.
    However, to prepare for all the excitement, a few bugs, cobwebs and brush piles are being cleaned up first.

    Its going to be a great season!
