ALEXANDRIA, VA-Historic Alexandria takes charge in preserving historic sites in the city. Today (Feb. 20) the organization released a survey that asks the question, Why does history matter? The reason for the survey is to promote engagement with the community.

All the city’s museums care about making the history shared with the public “more meaningful,” according to an Alexandria eNews bulletin.

“We need your help!” reads the bulletin. “Our visitors come to us with different needs and values, and we want to understand them so we can best serve you. From how museums (like ours!) can help expand learning while also addressing the challenges our society is facing, we need to hear your thoughts.”

The survey only takes about nine minutes to complete. Participants will be eligible for one of 10 $100 Visa gift cards.
