Thinking about interpretation
Providing interpretive materials is one way you can meet HLF’s mandatory aim to ‘help people to learn about their own and other people’s heritage’. This guidance explains how you can use interpretation to communicate to the public the interest, significance, value and meaning of heritage and sets out up-to-date costs for a range of interpretative methods.
