Being my first job as an interpreter, I guess I am experiencing a wake-up call when it comes to the prices of living history displays. I have been unable to find a reenactment unit that charges less than $1,000 a day to appear. Is this the norm, or am I just not looking in the right places? Unfortunately, being a state funded park gives me a VERY limited budget to work with, and since Western Gateway Heritage State Park is a museum dedicated to local history, I am feeling the need to offer more living and local history displays. For example, here I sit in a museum to the building of the Hoosac Tunnel and railroading, and my current exhibits are of the state Junior Duck Stamp entries, and a display of spinning and weaving done by the local S & W group. Something just doesn't seem right about it. Any suggestions or ideas?....
