Recently,  I launched a new series here on the blog called ‘Meet a Museum Family’, in which I will be interviewing other museum loving families, and asking them to share their experiences and tips with my readers. I am really delighted that the first three interviews, with Melanie from Copenhagen, with Amanda from Australia, and with Mar from England, got such a great reception! I hope you enjoy the rest of the series just as much. This week, we travel back to Copenhagen to talk to Ania.  1. Why […]

I’m really excited to introduce a new series to you on the blog today! As you know, I’m a strong advocate for taking kids to museums, including, of course, my own two sons. I always love to hear from other families who feel the same, about their experiences, their favourite museums, and any tips they have to share. So I thought it would be a nice idea to start an interview series with other museum loving families, and to share their experiences and tips with my […]

A couple of months ago, I visited Denmark, known as a leading light in the world of interior design. I was attending The Hive, a blog conference also attended by many interior design bloggers.

Founded in 1890, it is the largest museum in Denmark for not only Danish but also international design e.g. from Germany, France and China, with a focus on the significance these collections for the development on nordic design. My visit […]

Just in time for today’s public holiday and long weekend here in Germany, the weather has once again turned Autumnal, so I’ve been enjoying looking through photographs from my recent trip to Copenhagen and remembering the beautiful summer sunshine we had there. The Botanical Garden in Copenhagen, along with the Botanical Museum and Library, the Geological Museum and the Zoological Museum, is part of the Natural History Museum of Denmark at the University of Copenhagen. Home to about 11,000 species, the historic garden is home […]

{Denmark} A Cave within a City

As far as unusual exhibition spaces go, Cisternerne – the only dripstone cave in Denmark – underneath Frederiksberg’s Søndermarken Park by Copenhagen has to be the most unusual I’ve ever visited. Once a subterranean reservoir providing the Danish capital with drinking water (it covers a space of 4,320 square metres and at full capacity can hold 16 millions litres of water!), ‘The Cisterns’ was turned in to an exhibition space in the mid 1990s and was home to a museum of modern glass art from […]

{Denmark} Dining with Bjørn Nørgaard

There’s a proverb that says, ‘the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach’. Well, the way to a hungry family’s heart, when visiting a museum, is through a good museum café. I’ve previously written about our wonderful experience visiting the Statens Museum for Kunst in Copenhagen, but I didn’t dwell much on their café then. Let me remedy that. The café at the Statens Museum for Kunst is a bright, light-filled space on the lower level, overlooking the park outside. We grabbed a […]
