This will just be a short post to highlight a website I found. The site is called ALHFAM, or The Association for Living History, Farm and Agricultural Museums.

Here you will not only be able to search for living history museums, colonial villages, and other types of reenation fun, but you will also find ways to sign up for hands-on training, forums on specialized topics, conference sites and dates, and employment opportunities.

I don’t know about you, but my family really enjoys visiting places based in past times. The food, the gardens, the lifestyle, and the opportunity to teach our children a bit of our historic past is priceless. It’s not too late in the season to visit one, as some are still holding harvest festivals or teaching skills like the use of woodstoves for heat. If your family has an open weekend, why not fill it with some inexpensive, educational fun at a local living history museum?
