100 Museums Challenge: Museum No.93 I don’t often write about exhibitions just as they are about to close, but today we FINALLY managed to make it to the much lauded Erwin Wurm exhibition at the Berlinische Galerie, on its penultimate day before it finishes. We had such a great time, that I quickly wanted to share a post about it for anyone currently in Berlin who either hadn’t heard of it or had been undecided about going – you still have one day left! Erwin […]

100 Museums Challenge: Museums No.86 We are currently on our summer vacation in Wuppertal, and the blog is meant to be having a bit of a break, but I wanted to share some pics from our museum trip yesterday. I was thrilled that we found the time to pop over to one of my favourite museums in Germany – the Deutsches Röntgen Museum, home to X-ray history, in the neighbouring town of Lennep. I’ve written about it extensively before, so I won’t go in to too much detail […]

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 […]

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 […]

{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 […]
