Bringing history to life

In a good way: a new series of Philadelphia historical lectures and storytelling, paired with an astounding display of the archaeology resulting from the excavation of the Constitution Center site, will make up an attempt to make history vivid to visitors via a program called Once Upon a Nation. The new effort will be based in the former Visitor's Center at 3rd and Chestnut, renamed the Living History Center, and will involve free events (such as public storytellers and reenactments) and ticketed shows. This seems like a good addition to the current array of museums, sites, and tours -- something to help link it all together and especially to engage kids.
