This paper presents a conceptual framework for tangible AR interfaces to manipulate historical artefacts. Advances in digital technologies exalted tangible interfaces and augmented reality applications into the museum scene. However, there is a lack of welldefined design space that formalises the design process of tangible AR interfaces. The framework is evaluated and refined by analysing data collected from an in-situ study for a tangible AR exhibit at a museum (N=80) and presents key aspects that contribute with a set of design characteristics for developing and evaluating tangible AR interfaces. The proposed framework aims to promote tangible AR interfaces that foster a sense of engagement, facilitate learning, and enhance interaction experience with historical artefacts. Additionally, the framework can aid designers, researchers, and cultural heritage professionals in understanding and guiding the design process to build more engaging tangible AR interfaces that are specific for the manipulation of historical artefacts.
