As we continue to deal with the effects of the COVID 19 pandemic and the restrictions of different activities that we have enjoyed in the past, many are still concerned about attending events with large numbers of people.
Still, it is nice to have something new and fun to do every once in a while, especially if you have kids.
Have you considered a visit to a living history museum?
Considering that many of these museums put on living history events outdoors, it might be the perfect way to spend a Saturday or Sunday.
Who Would Be Interested In A Living History Museum?
Who should go to a living history museum? Anyone really, although they are especially great for those who enjoy learning about American history or the U.S. military.
Living history exhibits are educational for children and others wishing to learn more about American history and enjoyable tributes for those who know the stories or perhaps even took part in one of them.
They are favorite activities for veterans and their families, many of whom are even involved in the creation or support of various military living history museums and exhibits.
What Will You See There?
What will you see at a living history museum?
That will vary depending on the museum, but most include military weapons and vehicles exhibits, military memorial statues, indoor and outdoor weapons, uniforms, memorabilia displays, and much more.
Many also perform living history reenactments like battle reenactments and weapons and artillery demonstrations, from the simple rifles used in the American Civil War to the powerful tanks and mortars used in World War II and Vietnam.
Discover Living History Museums!
Typically congregated around historic military sites or within the vicinity of official monuments and commemorative statues, living history museums are a wonderful choice as a new activity to try out.
There are many of them throughout the country and it is possible to visit a new one in every state to see and learn new things and impressive living history events.
You might even plan a trip around visiting a few of these locations to have multiple experiences.
Stay Outside At Living History Museums
So this year once the weather warms up, you can avoid the theaters and indoor concert halls by seeking out another fun, educational, and interesting activity.
Put a visit to some living history museums in your state on your recreational bucket list to pay tribute to those who have served for us, learn the stories of our military’s past, and enjoy some incredible battle and weapons demonstrations.
Living history museums are museums that are just a little different but very worth the time!
