Bringing heritage to life

At its best, learning happens where people experience 'the real thing', in venues such as historic sites, nature parks, zoos or museums.

Heritage interpretation facilitates such experiences using a broad range of approaches from guided walks to sophisticated exhibitions.

Interpret Europe encourages dialogue and partnership between associations and universities, providers and professionals. More than 1,000 members from 55 countries share their expertise in making heritage more meaningful to people, and people more mindful towards our future.

Through interpretation, I believe heritage can contribute
to the building of communities, not just at local level,
but also on national and European levels.
