National Council on Public History: Milwaukee Bound

Milwaukee Art Museum

I recently found out that I’m going to be able to attend at this year’s National Council on Public History (NCPH) conference in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  I’ve been thinking (read: dreaming/wishing) about this conference for months now, so I’m a tad bit on the excited side that I’m going to be able to attend.

This year’s conference theme is “Frontiers of Capitalism and Democracy” and is being held in conjunction Organization of American Historians (OAH).  The complete conference program can be seen here.

This will be my first time attending a NCPH conference.  The NCPH meeting brings together professionals from museums, archives, universities, historical societies, secondary schools, and many other walks of life.  I’m looking forward to a wide range of sessions, participating in a local history tour, and networking with people from a variety of backgrounds.  I’m also hoping to meet face to face a number of people I have been digitally talking to and working with over the past few years. 

Suggestions of any must see sights while in Milwaukee?
