InnerActive History: Exploring New and Innovative Techniques for History Museums and Exhibits 

A new workshop examines how museums have an amazing opportunity to learn from and incorporate some of the techniques utilized by the rapidly growing trends of escape rooms, immersive theater, and other forms of experience-based entertainment. 

These new models can not only allow museums to remain relevant in the 21st century, attract new audiences, and develop earned revenue streams, but also foster environments which are highly conducive to engagement and learning.
