  1. The George Etienne Cartier Museum in Montreal used to do a wonderful theatrical program that took visitors through the house as if they were being interviewed for a maid’s job. They were given cleaning supplies in each room and told what task they were expected to do–carrying weighted buckets up the stairs, cleaning the carpets, dusting, tying the mistress into a corset. At each stop they practiced the task with brushes, feather dusters, baking soda, rags. It was a marvelous program and great fun.
