What is Public History?

Public history tells compelling, entertaining, true stories using language, artifacts, images, architecture, and landscapes to connect with the public. It is a dynamic, responsive, and socially just discipline that goes beyond the study of history, it does history.

 

Interpret. Exhibit. Preserve.
