Now, many of you may be asking yourselves, what is a living museum? A living museum recreates a historical time period by providing visitors (parents) with the opportunity to meet various historical figures (students) of the past. In our case, all historical figures on display will be of Hispanic heritage.
During the living museum portion of the night your child will be expected to stand still like a statute for about 15 minutes. Visiting parents, staff and students can bring the historical figures to life by gently touching their shoulder. Once activated, the statues will begin sharing information about themselves (their historical figure) and how they contributed to their culture. Everyone is encouraged to participate! What makes this experience even more unique is that some statues will be able to communicate in more than one language.
