The American Alliance of Museum’s Virtual Annual Meeting & MuseumExpo theme is focusing on Radical Reimagining so we can all take that first step together. Join us on May 18, International Museums Day, to kick off our virtual meeting, and on June 1-4 for the full conference.
Even though our heritage sites may be physically closed, we can still offer exciting experiences. Learn how to offer virtual experiences – a wander through a historic house, a view of favorite exhibits, or offer behind the scenes peeks of a heritage site – in the Stories of the Chesapeake workshop series. This free three-part series will focus on content, technical requirements, equipment, and best practices for building a rewarding virtual experience without breaking the bank.
Join Preservation Maryland Executive Director Nicholas Redding and WWII historian and scholar Jared Frederick for a discussion on the history, significance and impact of D-Day. The conversation will take place 76 years to the moment that paratroopers landed in the fields of Normandy starting the greatest amphibious assault in world history. Frederick, a Penn State Instructor and author of “Dispatches of D-Day: A People’s History of the Normandy Invasion” will explore the human toll and impact of the famous battle and provide insight into the Marylanders present for the assault.
Hosted by New Castle County Department of Land Use
