Last weekend, I was lucky enough to win a space on the InstaWalk #EmptyBodeMuseum around Berlin’s Bode Museum! Apart from the guards on duty, some staff who welcomed us, and a choir that was rehearsing in the main hall for a concert later that evening, the museum was completely empty.

Ask-a-Curator 2014

If you love museums and you love social media, then you will have loved this year’s Ask-a-Curator earlier in the week – the biggest Q&A session with museums worldwide, via Twitter (if you’re hearing about it for the first time, I wrote a bit more about what Ask-a-Curator actually is in a previous post).
