Invite your local reporter to spend a day with you

Emily Yoffe of Slate recently spend some time at the Claude Moore Colonial Farm, in costume, experiencing the life of an eighteenth century resident. Her article, “A Colonial Dame,” paints a picture for readers of what many of you have already experienced – the day-to-day tasks associated with running a colonial farm, with no machinery or technology to assist us.This is a great idea that many sites around the nation can replicate. Invite your local reporters to spend a day at your museum. Put them in costume and teach them how to cook over a fire, sew, garden… After their experience, they can write a human interest story that can educate readers about times gone by, while promoting your museum at the same time!
