My father started to build a World War II museum when I was very young. He put he life and his savings into creating an interactive and unique experience for every museum goer. Now after many years the museum has been completed and is become open to the public. Many visitors come who are either veterans or who served in the war themselves and have all appreciated the very real and enlightened views into the war as a whole.
Recently, as more visitors have been coming, some have brought along their children or grandchildren, very often in their teenage years, to the museum. What we have noticed with these young adults is that the majority of information they learn there is completely new to them as high schools as of yet do not have very many in depth classes about the war.
What we wish to do now, is help the younger generation feel involved and be able to relate and maintain interest in this history. We are currently raising funds for an entire educational wing to be added on to the museum and as I am the youngest worker there it has fallen upon me to find a way to get teenagers engaged during their visits. The project decided on is an audio guided tour by teenagers and read by teenagers to relate their experiences and hopefully maintain an interest in history even after the visit is long over.
The funds I am raising will go to paying for the equipment , recording studio and payment for the speakers.
