Berlin Museums for Kids: What’s on in August?

Before I whisk my kids away on their summer holiday (sadly, daddy has an important work deadline and is staying in Berlin) and Museum Diary takes a little summer break too, I wanted to get the August listings for ‘Berlin Museums for Kids’ to you. Several museums  have scaled back their regular weekly programming during the school holidays, so some of the categories are a bit more sparse than usual, but to make up for it, there’s a wide variety of special summer holiday programmes to chose […]

{Scotland} Dundee Science Centre

100 Museums Challenge: Museum No.84 During our recent little holiday in Scotland, we visited the Dundee Science Centre, a hands-on experience aimed at families. There was a special CSI exhibit that had just opened for the Scottish summer holidays, and runs until the end of August, so we jumped right in with the dig pit. Forget about dino digs, we were digging up (replica) human bones! After the kids had dug them up, cleaned with with brushes, and collected them in a bucket, they could […]

{Scotland} I Capture the Castle

100 Museums Challenge: Museum No.83 I’ve just come back from a one week trip to Scotland with the boys. We were visiting a friend in Dundee, and then spent a couple of nights in Edinburgh before flying home. On previous trips to Dundee, I had been to Broughty Ferry before – a suburb of Dundee right next to the beach on the river Tay – but I’d never made it to Broughty Castle Museum. Third time lucky! As the name implies, the museum is located inside […]

Berlin Museums for Kids: What’s On in July?

Oh my goodness, in the midst of packing for a short holiday in Scotland with the #MuseumBrothers, leaving daddy to fend for himself in Berlin, I realised that the new month starts while we are away! So I have quickly put together the highlights for July, including both old favourites and some new additions. However, many museums are also kicking off their special summer holiday programmes in July, with more events than I could possibly include here. So I’m going to add in a little overview […]

{Germany} Between the Lines at JMBerlin

100 Museums Challenge: Museum No.82 Last week, I was invited to take part in an ’empty walk’ instameet around the Jewish Museum Berlin after hours. For those not familiar with the concept, an instameet is a meetup of Instagrammers, i.e. photographers active on the social media platform Instagram, and an empty walk is when you get to explore a place when it’s closed, with no other visitors there. Despite it being among my top most visited museums every year for the past five years while […]

{England} The Museum of London

100 Museums Challenge: Museum No.78 When I attended the Blogtacular conference in London last weekend, I was ecstatic to discover it was literally right next door to the Museum of London. I was torn between using the conference breaks for networking – the reason I was there – and having a museum I’d not yet visited just within reach. Thankfully, we had a very generous lunch break which allowed for both, so only wild horses would have kept me from popping next door and having […]
