Travis Childs, Director of The History Museum


Mr. Travis Childs, Director of Education The History Museum, South Bend, IN.

I coordinate and implement educational programs with historic themes for public, private and parochial schools within the twelve counties in northern Indiana and southwestern Michigan that The History Museum serves. I am responsible for The History Museum’s website. I design, update and manage the museum’s website on a regular basis. I periodically give tours within the museum and out in the community highlighting the rich heritage of our community. Occasionally I have the opportunity to examine and conduct oral history interviews with certain Michiana residents. I design and implement several different technologies to make our exhibits more educational and entertaining.
