The New Face of History
New Mexico History Museum Takes Interactive
Approach To Show The Many Sides Of Our Stories

Some people say that “history is written by the winners.” The New Mexico History Museum (www.nmhistorymuseum.org/), opening May 24, 2009, sets out to challenge that notion by taking a new approach, engaging visitors in the craft of history. Rather than staidly reporting what “happened,” the New Mexico History Museum presents a theatrical environment and the powerful stories of the many cultures that have called the Land of Enchantment home. Sometimes those cultures blended. Sometimes they clashed. Always, they added new stitches to a tapestry of life that’s among the oldest in the nation. Whether those stitches were for good or ill is up to visitors to decide. The museum allows them to reach their own conclusions about what “really” happened.
