My 2016 Challenge: 100 Museums!

100museums

This is shaping up to be the year of travel. We have family holidays booked to Gothenburg and Washington DC/New York, and a couple short trips by myself to Edinburgh and Dublin. Further trips to Madrid, Brussels, London and Amsterdam may or may not also happen. I thought it would be the perfect year to attempt another ‘100 Museums’ challenge. I first started keeping track in 2011, of every museum I visited, when I started out with a ’52 Museums in 52 Weeks’ challenge. After that, I didn’t set myself any more challenges, but keeping track had become a habit by then, so I know that in 2012 and 2013 I managed to hit the magic 100 mark both times. The last two years have seen fewer museums, since I haven’t travelled as much because of #MuseumBaby, and stuck more to revisiting the same old favourites on our doorstep. But with a good amount of sightseeing on this year’s horizon, I thought it would be fun to aim for 100 again – and this time not just to keep a list, but to document each visit with at least one photo and a short paragraph or two (with the possibility of following up with more detailed reviews at a later stage). I have to admit, I haven’t gotten off to a great start, as it’s already the end of January and my number of museums visited so far comes to the grand total of 1! But there’s plenty time yet to catch up. I hope…

    Quite a challenge. Good luck. It’s exciting to have all those trips booked. I can’t offer any advice for those places as I’ve not been to museums in any of them. I would however love to go to The Frick Collection in NY, so perhaps if you visit, we can visit vitually through your blog. I’ve just caught up with museums 5-8. I’m inspired to visit Edinburgh.

      Thanks! I’ve done 100 museums in a year before, but I only had one kid then and didn’t give myself the additional challenge of documenting them all, so we’ll see how it goes! Unfortunately, I’ll have to disappoint you with regards to The Frick Collection. Children under age 10 are not welcome there, so we won’t be visiting them on our holiday.
