Partner with Us

A Collaborative Effort

Museums and historic sites are invited to join History Space. Partner institutions can leverage NHS resources and project mutual priorities, creating fresh, synergistic perspectives to shape the future of public history in New England and beyond.

Why do it? What are the outcomes?


-Demonstrate to practitioners of public history that history is not dead.

-Begin to create a consensus in the field about what public history is and what best practice looks like.

-Support the preservation of traditional trades and crafts.

-Participate in a potentially national conversation about how we think about our past–the role of memories and heritage as perhaps distinct from history; how we conceptualize and talk about facts and interpretation, how we use history to understand today and work towards a better future.
