About the Author

David Allison is Manager of Onsite Programs at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. He helps to create and sustain high-quality shows and facilitated experiences for visitors of all ages. His most recent projects at the museum include writing and developing a new multimodal show on the science of flight. In addition, he works with a team of enactors who portray composite historical characters in the gallery halls and for temporary exhibits at the museum.


Whatever you think of living history, this book offers a much-needed fresh look at the interpretive method and cautions that it must adapt to remain effective. Allison's voice of experience guides the reader through recent changes and his mixture of interviews, scholarship and personal anecdotes makes it an easy read. -- Tim Grove, author of "A Grizzly in the Mail and Other Adventures in American History" and co-editor of "The Museum Educator's Manual"
