My name is Leah Berg and I am a graduate student in the Museum Exhibition Planning and Design program at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA. I am currently working on my Master's thesis which looks at how historic house museums are using dynamic interpretation within the house's context to help create evocative experiences that will feel authentic through the use of real human stories, while engaging visitors through all of their senses and provoking their imagination. I am conducting this survey to ascertain what and how historic house museums are implementing these design strategies in their institutions.

Thank you for taking the time to answer this short survey. I look forward to sharing my findings and conclusions with the field upon completion.

Please email me if you have any additional ideas or suggestions at lberg@uarts.edu
