Abstract:

Based on themes rather than collections, heritage centres provide a new and different approach to exhibiting the past, placing it, in Patricia Sterry’s words, ‘on display, but not out of reach’. Neither museum nor theme park, they challenge a number of sacrosanct notions attached to the very word ‘heritage’. The author is a senior lecturer in design history at the University of Salford, United Kingdom, and course leader of a post-graduate Master’s degree in heritage studies: interpretation, presentation and design.
