Podcast 65 - Museums, Part 1: Military/War

January 15, 2019

Gena, Jean, & Sara discuss museums and other similar buildings that serve the purpose of displaying and explaining historical items and/or events. These are great resources for the social history buff. In the first half (included here) the program consists of definitions of terms, types of museums and the like, and some of the experiences of the podcasters. The second half (available only with a premium subscription) covers specifics on wars and military museums.
