As one of the instigators behind the video I’m obviously biased, but I’m thrilled by the response so far to it. Museums can be fun–even with a few basic rules–even historic house museums!
The first video of 2014 On View is “Hill House Rulz” from St. Paul, Minnesota’s James J. Hill House, a historic site managed by the Minnesota Historical Society. Home of the founder of the Great Northern Railway, the “ginormous” mansion and grounds are open to visitors year-round. All praises be to the staff for introducing us to the site while presenting a lot of normally snooze-inducing facts (operating hours, history, etiquette, etc.) in a fun, irreverent way.
