Summary
In Exhibiting Patriotism, Bergman analyzes exhibits, interpretive materials, and orientation films at major U.S. sites. She shows how historic narratives are the result of dynamic relationships between institutions and the public, and how these relationships are changing in an era when museums are becoming more visitor-centered, seeing visitors as partners in historical interpretation
