Q&A with the Marketing Director
When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
The Aspen Historical Society is passionate about presenting Aspen's history. Our town's history is rich and colorful and we use a variety of tours and museum exhibits to tell the stories that make it up. Keeping the history going is integral to continuing to develop Aspen as a world-class place.
What special training do you or your staff have?
All of our guides and museum docents are NAI-trained and certified. NAI stands for the National Association for Interpretation. It's an extensive five-day program so that they are fully equipped in thematically designing tours and paying attention to guest's needs.
What is the experience customers can expect, and how do you make it special?
Each guest, or group of guests, is guided through the museum with their own docent. The experience is very intimate, and allows for a lot of dialogue and customization of tours.
