Museum Diary is back from its summer break! And ready to jump right back in to things. If you’ve been following the blog for a while, you may remember my post about the ‘babies in museums’ initiative I worked together on with the Stadtmuseum Berlin. I followed up my post with a review of my visit with my own baby to one of the special free admission day for parents. With the exhibition and our pilot project now coming to an end, and the last ‘Elternzeit […]

This week, you can find me as a guest contributor over on ‘Mr Fox’, an online magazine  and weekly newsletter “for modern, discerning parents” which features “the best content across all aspects of modern family life”. The site first caught my attention due to its name – #MuseumBaby’s nickname is ‘Mr Fox’ – and I have been a regular reader pretty much from the start. I am therefore delighted to have been asked to share my tips and advice for enjoying family museum trips without meltdowns! You can […]

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.

A guest post by Erin Blasco, who does public programs and social media at the Smithsonian National Postal Museum. Say hi on Twitter: @erinblasco. The Postal Museum web team and education department wanted to find out a few key things from our social media followers. Since we lacked a baseline of information about who they are, why they follow us, and what they want, we wanted to keep the first set of surveys simple. Our response rates weren’t huge (84 of our Twitter followers and […]
