As I mentioned on Friday, it was time for another Long Night of Museums here in Berlin at the weekend. But beforehand I was off to a MuseUp at the newly re-opened Schwules Museum (Gay Museum) to kick off the afternoon. Focus of the event was the exhibition ‘Ades Wunderland’, honouring Berlin comedy artist Ades Zabel who was there to guide us round himself. As part of the exhibition, you could dress up in the style of one of Ades’ characters – of course, I […]

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 […]
