100 Museums Challenge: Museum No.1 So, as I mentioned in my previous post, my new year – and thus my ‘100 Museums‘ challenge got off to a slow start.

The Deutsches Historisches Museum in Berlin was offering free entry to mark Holocaust Memorial Day, which I thought was the perfect opportunity to visit their newly opened special exhibition ‘Art from the Holocaust’. ‘Art from the Holocaust’ features 100 works created between 1939 and 45 by […]

52 Museums in 52 Weeks

This time last year I had the idea that, as a challenge for the year, I would try to visit 52 museums in 52 weeks. However, with #MuseumBaby to look after I didn’t know how feasible this project was or whether I’d just end up being one of those mums who visits the National Museum of Scotland every other day because it’s free and it’s raining again outside. Turns out, a bit of both as the case was. But, either way, I didn’t tell anyone […]
