Below - interpretive panel to work as a mangement tool, copy of interpretive panel showing how Tilden's Interpretive Principles (provoke, relate, reveal) is used, and two of our kiosk designs.
Interpretive panels that don't use Tilden's Interpretive Principles and illustrate a main interpretive theme are really NOT "interpretive" at all. Here is an example of a real interpretive panel.
