About History Hour

What is History Hour?

History Hour brings knowledgeable, engaging regional historians to local museums and organizations, either in person or online. We help museums build their local audience for history, through compelling presentations that resonate with their communities.

Our standard offering is a monthly Zoom broadcast for county and general history museums that can be shown to a group at your museum (with optional discussion afterwards) or viewed from home by ticketholders. The main presentation is typically recorded to ensure audiovisual quality (functioning maps and images; good sound), with the speaker available afterward to take questions and engage with attendees. This ticketed event is a fundraiser for your museum. Some museums with membership programs choose to offer discounts to members as a perk of membership, which helps promote membership. One museum is highlighted each month. History Partners provides a dedicated ticket sales page for each museum.

We also work with local museums to create local History Hour events held at your facility.
