"Sten Rentzhog has done what no one else has done. He has written a comprehensive international history of open air museums. Full of detailed information about museums from Sweden to the Czech Republic to Canada and the United States, Open Air Museums can inform about the past. But it also tells much about the ways open air museums have appealed to visitors, and the ways that they can continue to be relevant in a changing world."
