What results in the fi nal draft is the expectation of the museum that most people are familiar with as a result of their own personal experiences. Th ey closely follow the idea that the museum is an institutional complex that visually defi nes history as objects serving as evidence of a time past (Vergo, 1989). But they also see that what is considered history in a public institution oft en lacks any engagement in the historical methodology that prompts close readings of objects and texts that work to corroborate or question the evidence needed to answer a question. Th ey oft en see fi rst hand how the museum processes of collecting, archiving, preserving, and exhibiting are presented as the primary purpose of museums. What is missing within the history museum is evidence of why the museum presents history as a discipline-dependent series of museum practices of display and the robust information about the object that is not always presented to the public.
