AASLH: Most Trust Museums as Sources of Historical Information

AASLH: Most Trust Museums as Sources of Historical Information. “In an AASLH 2018 broader population sampling, conducted by Wilkening Consulting, we asked 1,000 people about the trustworthiness of four history sources, and a generic ‘museums.’ We found that 81% of respondents ranked history museums and historic sites as ‘absolutely’ or ‘somewhat’ trustworthy—making them more trustworthy than history textbooks and nonfiction, high school history teachers, and the internet as sources of history information.” AASLH stands for American Association for State and Local History.
