Dr. Dennis Cremin, professor of history and director of the Lewis University History Center, says there are three main components in today’s museum exhibits.
Cremin has consulted on several exhibits, including Illinois organizations who are hosted the “Hometown Teams: Sports in American Communities” exhibit of the Smithsonian Institution’s Museum on Main Street (MOMS) program. Cremin frequently presents insights on place-based learning, museums and history. In 2014, he was the keynote speaker at the 16th Annual Conference on Illinois History.
