Visitor Experience – Seeds of History

When I give school group tours, I always tell the students that we can only see a part of the museum, and that they should come with their family and spend more time, as there are lot of great history related things to see here. Recently, I was giving a tour to some 5th graders from Williamsburg, and gave them the usual welcome back and bring their family. The next day, on a Saturday, a young student came in with his mother, his soccer practice having been rained out. He and his mother co-mingled in the tour I was giving with some adults, and the young student seemed to know all the answers to the question inter-play. I said “have you been here before?”. He answered that he had been in my school tour the day before!

Some where along the line the “seeds of history” had been planted. What a nice feeling!
