We’ve come to the end of of this summer’s Museum City Guide series. You may already have guessed what the last city to be featured is. After my current home stomping ground Berlin, and the home of my heart, Edinburgh, there’s another museum city that is very special to me, and that’s Washington, D.C. The first thing that springs to most people’s minds, when they think of Washington, D.C. and museums, is ‘The Smithsonian’, and while it has many great museums to offer, there is […]

We’ve almost come to the end of my summer ‘Museum City Guide’ series. Only two more cities to go. This week’s penultimate guide is devoted to fascinating Yerevan, the capital city of Armenia which I had the privilege of visiting last year.   1.

And yes, part of that was spent at a museum conference, but just for the record – my husband didn’t mind and thought it was fun to get to see me speak.

Today I’m really happy to welcome back Melanie Haynes, in the first of the ‘Museum City Guide’ guest editions that I had promised you. Mel and I originally became friends through an English speaking playgroup in Berlin, and she has previously contributed a guest post on toddler testing Berlin’s Museum für Naturkunde with her son, who is a year older than #MuseumBaby. We were really sad when Mel and her family moved back to Copenhagen, and also a little bit jealous because it’s a place […]
