Kids have profound and important relationships to the past but they don't experience history in the same way as adults. For museum professionals and everyone involved in informal history education and exhibit design, this book is the essential new guide to creating meaningful and memorable connections to the past for children. D. Lynn McRainey and John Russick bring together top museum professionals to present state-of-the-art research and practice, covering educational theory and developmental frameworks, audience research and evaluation, connecting with kids as creative consultants, specific techniques and tools for connecting kids to history, and creating successful exhibits and interpretive experiences, including labels and messages, media, inter-actives, collections, and exhibit design. The only book to focus comprehensively on history exhibits for kids, Creating History Exhibits for Kids shows how to enhance the experiences of a vitally important but frequently the least understood museum audience.
