Interpretation brings heritage to life

Visiting a heritage site, being touched by it, considering how it relates to oneself, and how it can help to shape our future – this is what characterises good interpretation.

Heritage interpretation takes place in varied locations like nature parks, historic buildings, zoos or museums, and uses a broad range of approaches from guided walks to sophisticated exhibitions.

While heritage organisations care for the conservation of heritage, interpretation supports this aim by involving visitors and communities. Interpret Europe encourages dialogue and partnership working between associations, universities and individuals from more than 30 countries to share their experiences in making heritage more meaningful to people.
