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

Apologies for getting the December listings out a bit late, but I have been struggling a bit with having #MuseumBaby home sick for most of the past two weeks, as well as all the family preparations in the run up to December, as you can imagine with two young kids. But here they are, just in time for the weekend! As may be expected, there are a lot of seasonal things happening, to all the Advent & Christmas Markets, and the Seasonal Events have their […]

Happy 1st of Advent & a Giveaway!

Happy 1st of Advent everyone! If it feels like it’s come around quickly this year, you’d be right. The 27th November is the earliest date that the first Advent Sunday can fall on. On the upside, it gives us a few extra days to enjoy the festive season – and a legitimate reason to get those decorations and festive music on the go, before December! To celebrate the 1st of Advent, I have a special giveaway for you, courtesy of the asisi Panorama Berlin. A […]

After a bit of a summer of a summer hiatus, the Kids in Museums Book Club is back. And since we are heading to New York for the Autumn school holidays, the book club is heading there too. This is the first time I’ve chosen a book with no words in it at all, but both my 2 year old and my 6 year old love ‘You Can’t Take a Balloon Into The Metropolitan Museum’, by Jacqueline Preiss Weitzman and Robin Preiss Glasser. We make […]

#InstaMuseum Day 2016

I love museums and I love Instagram, so creating an event to bring the two together was a no-brainer. #InstaMuseum is an annual worldwide event for championing museums on Instagram, which I run under the auspices of my project, Museum140. Every year, people share their museum photos, highlight interesting exhibitions and shout out to their favourite museums. The museums themselves get involved, too, of course. With the help of museums, museum lovers and the Instagram community, we have also been building a comprehensive list of ‘Museums on […]
