Layer 4

Looking for an entertaining, informative, high energy presentation that brings the past to life? Time Traveler Trunks works with you to select an engaging program to suit your needs. On the day of the presentation a Time Traveler Trunks professional will come to your facility with several large “trunks” containing a wide variety of material culture. Typically the presenter will arrive 20-30 minutes ahead of time to set up.

Programs are delivered in a storytelling format and audience members become specific people from local and national history. While being entertained the audience is learning about what clothing and other material culture represents in terms of cultural expectations, economics, resources, and technology.  In addition to providing insight historical events, the presentation will make connections revealing how the past and present are related.
