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 […]

Best Temporary Exhibitions I’ve counted 20 temporary exhibitions I visited in 2011, including ones on bathrooms, war photography, movie storyboards, Alice in Wonderland, fire and The Queen, so it’s difficult to choose, but taking into account the overall impact and interest in the subject matter, I think my three favourites are: Mammuts: Giganten der Eiszeit at the Neanderthal Museum The Hokusai Retrospektive at the Martin Gropius Bau Banished Books at the National Library of Scotland Honourable mention to Fashion Talks at the Museum für Kommunikation, which made me laugh because I travelled […]

No, they’re not made fresh in house, they are pre-packaged from a gluten free range, but at least they recognise that they have customers with a need for this and they have three or […]

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 […]

Deutsches Röntgen Museum

Have you ever heard of the town of Lennep in Germany? No? Well, you should have, because it’s home to the Deutsches Röntgen Museum. I first visited several years ago, when the museum was still a little old fashioned in its presentation, though even then the subject matter itself was no less interesting. Then, on my last visit two years ago, they were in the middle of a major renovation, which sounded very promising and I looked forward to re-discovering the museum once the renovation […]
