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 […]

100 Museums Challenge: Museum No.75 When I arrived in London on Thursday afternoon last week, I did a good deal of shopping (the usual long list of British food, magazine and toiletries we miss in Berlin), geeked out with the Tudors at the National Portrait Gallery, then was ready to call it a night.

Hallowe’en is just around the corner, and I have to admit, I am a big fan! Previously, I shared a piece here on the blog about the Scottish/Irish cultural background of Hallowe’en (if you think it’s all about devil worship, I recommend you read it and be convinced of the contrary), but this year I decided to do something a little fun instead. I had a look around the world to see which spookily themed museums would be a perfect fit for museums lovers to visit […]

These days, there’s a museum for everything, and Christmas is no exception. With just a few weeks to go until the big day, I’ve pulled together some of the world’s best museums to put you in the Christmas spirit. 1. Deutsches Weihnachtsmuseum (Germany) Germany is well known for its traditional Christmas decorations, such as nutcrackers and wooden pyramids, and some of our best loved customs like the Christmas tree developed there too. So it seems logical that Germany would have a Christmas Museum. At the Deutsches Weihnachtsmuseum […]

We’re more than half way through my summer ‘Museum City Guides’ series, so it’s time for the other guest post I promised you. When I first discovered Jack’s Adventures in Museum Land, I immediately felt like I had stumbled upon a kindred spirit. Jack’s blog is a personal account of all the museums around the world he loves to visit, with a particular passion for unique and obscure hidden gems, and the occasional museum related recipe. Sound familiar? Although I used to visit London and […]
