On this pleasant early spring weekend, I spent some time checking out the seasonal reopening of the Susquehanna Museum of Havre de Grace. Joe, Bill, Charlie and other always helpful and informative docents were on hand, showing visitors through the lock-house and two new exhibits for 2012. The one focusing on the 200th anniversary of the devastating 1813 British attack on Havre de Grace features lively audio presentations that use a combination of narration, music, sounds, and historical character presentations to bring deeper context to the War of 1812. While looking over the well-designed exhibit panels, photos, and artifacts, I paused at the audio stations as these skillfully written and produced pieces of audio theater greatly enhanced the experience. Be sure to check out the Lockhouse Museum soon. You will enjoy the visit.
