President Lincoln’s Cottage is honored to announce that the Visitor Experience Re-Vision (VERV) received a 2015 Leadership in History award from the American Association for State and Local History, the highest honor awarded by the organization. This new, interactive technology enhanced the Cottage tour experience by offering guides the opportunity to curate tours to group interests in real time, with the aid of resource-rich tablets and dynamic multimedia.
An array of new features, such as crisp, high-quality visuals, audio recordings of never-before-told stories, scents, “windows into the past” and a dramatic presentation on wartime Washington, creates an evocative, sensory experience for visitors. The VERV enhancements are made possible by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services.
