Directory of Museum & Historical Sites Events & Exhibitions

(If you would like your events page posted here, just forward the link to cyrus@cyruswakefield.com, and Sutler Cyrus will add it to the list.)

 

Sutler Cyrus is pleased to present this handy list of links to interesting places to visit. I’ve been to some, in person, and I guarantee you will enjoy the visit.

 

Most of the events will not be seen in the usual re-enactor journals, but all look very interesting. If you have the chance, give these sites your support. As you can see, they have gone to a great deal of effort to provide informative and entertaining programs for their communities and the traveling public, in general. Most of them have gift shops, the bread and butter of any site, stocked with unique period themed merchandise, so you can pick up an unusual souvenir reflective of the past and help them keep doing what they do – keep your history alive!

 

Thanks for your support of North America’s historical sites and museums.
