Living History

The living History Program at the Museum of Texas Handmade Furniture…

Living history is a tool used by historians to engage and inspire the public through entertaining interactions that investigate the past. Our living historians provide a view of the past through demonstrations of pioneer and 19th century technologies, clothing, and artifacts that cover a wide array of interests. This special programming brings the history presented in the museum alive and gives patrons a personal and unique connection to the past that they will long remember after visiting. It allows for visual, sensory, and auditory learners to access the past in a way that no other education medium can match. All of our living history programs are designed for student and adult groups and individuals. The presentation will vary by the age and inclinations of the audience.

Living history programs are available to both student and adult groups and individuals at the Museum of Texas Handmade furniture or as an outreach program. There are weekly events on Friday and Saturdays and lager events on the second saturday of every month!
