To bring sites to life we need…life: performances and interactions where people participate emotionally as well as intellectually, where they make personal memories of their own experiences through activities that are fun or enlightening – from theatre, song, poetry, and games to role play, dance, circus, and storytelling – this is the magic of museum theatre. And it’s fun.
