Museum Musings

As a public historian, exhibition developer, and museum worker, I'm committed to making history relevant, meaningful, and alive for contemporary audiences.  In this blog, I'll reflect on recent explorations.

 

ABOUT BENJAMIN

I'm Chief Curator at the North Carolina Museum of History in Raleigh.  Over the last three decades, I've worked as an exhibition developer at the Minnesota History Center, at the Outagamie County Historical Society (Appleton, WI), and as an independent consultant.  For a dozen years, I served as Director of Public History at UNC Greensboro.

FINLAND FULBRIGHT

From January-May 2019, I'm soaking up the public history scene in Helsinki, thanks to a Fulbright Fellowship!  Working with the Helsinki City Museum and the University of Helsinki's Museum Studies program, I'm finding inspiration in the galleries, in the classroom, on the streets, and beyond. 

I reflect on my experiences as they happen, below.
