History Site Locator

History Site Locator This site was designed by a history lover tired of searching to find history museums along her travel paths. Here is a database that will include all history museums, mapped on a Google map!

http://www.historysitelocator.com Do you love to visit history sites but are frustrated by searching numerous tourism websites to locate them? Then History Site Locator is for you! We are developing a database of all historic sites in the United States (with plans to add Canada in the future). You can conduct a simple search and see history museums pinpointed on a Google map! For museums: Be sure history travelers can find you by entering your museum information into our database. For a small fee, you can also have your URL and a 250-word description posted on your listing to give History Site Locator users more information about your museum and allow them to link directly to your website to get your hours and ticket information.

Here is an update on the status of History Site Locator! Spoiler: New museums are being added to the database daily! http://www.historysitelocator.com/come-along-for-the-ride/
