What is Interpretation?

Interpretation is about communicating a story or an idea - and creating an understanding of places, events, collections and people.

Interpretation should connect us with our environment and provide memorable experiences. It makes a visit to a property meaningful and enjoyable for visitors of all ages and interests.

It is also a core task of Interpretation to tell our visitors about our contemporary community – how the actions of today shape our nation's collective legacy.
