In case you missed the new yesterday, things are a bit different on Museum Diary this week.

Jenni’s Museum Awards 2011 (Part 1)

After visiting all those museums last year, I thought I would do a kind of ‘Museum Awards’ to pick out some of the highlights. Best Food No question, the award for best food experience has to go to the National Library of Scotland, simply for their selection of gluten free cakes! 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 […]

Travelling with a baby is always tiring, so with a very full conference schedule ahead of me I was going to have a restful first evening in Zagreb before #CECA2011 kicked off. Then I discovered that the much talked about Museum of Broken Relationships was open until 10:30pm! Winner of the Kenneth Hudson Award 2011 for most innovative museum in Europe, the museum is “a unique emotional journey around the world through hundreds of breakups”. The idea for the museum started out as an art project […]

This week the PhD Community at the University of Leicester’s School of Museum Studies is running their Symposium Curiouser and Curiouser, which seeks “to challenge notions of normality and eccentricity in museums, galleries and heritage institutions. I’m genuinely sad that I cannot go, and not just because they have goodie bags and a cute bunny mascot – the programme looks fantastic (I’m hoping some of the presentations will be available online afterwards?!). So, in honour of my new friend @MuseoBunny, I’ve put together a small […]
