“You’ve never seen a street like Sesame Street. Everything happens here. You’re gonna love it!” (pilot episode) Did you enjoy Friday’s post about the Sesame Street gang’s visit to the Metropolitan Museum of Art? Invented and developed in the US by a team of psychologists, educators, advertising experts and television producers in 1969, Sesame Street has since grown to be one of the most popular and successful children’s television programmes of all time, broadcast in over 140 countries. One of the special formats of the […]

With the Berlinale just behind us, and the Oscar’s coming up at the weekend, I thought I would dedicate this week on Museum Diary to all things film. I’ve previously written about the Museo Nazionale del Cinema in Turin, Italy, which I absolutely adored and spent over four hours in. Well, last summer on a trip to Frankfurt, here in Germany, I discovered another film museum I immediately fell in love with – the Deutsches Filmmuseum. I was actually planning to visit a couple of […]

So, you may begin to imagine how ecstatic I was on discovering that Vienna is home to the Third Man Museum (‘Dritte Mann Museum’), apparently the only […]

The 29th Lange Nacht der Museen Berlin

When I discovered I’d be moving to Berlin in time for the ‘Lange Nacht der Museen’ (Long Night of Museums) on 27th August, I was ecstatic, since I’d never been to a ‘night of museums’ before, and Berlin is the one that started all the others that now happen worldwide. Now in its 29th round, it takes place twice a year at the end of January and August, and this time it was all under the theme of music, with choirs and voice ensembles performing […]

Museo Nazionale del Cinema

Another Oscars related ‘museums & the movies’ post. Almost two years ago, I went on a trip to Turin to visit my father who was working there at the time. Knowing my love of both museums and cinema, he suggested the National Cinema Museum as a ‘must-see’. To say I was enamoured by the museum would probably be an understatement – we spent almost four hours there, and that was without visiting either the café or the gift shop! I would have happily stayed for […]
