Most Popular Posts of 2014

January 5, 2015


Happy New Year to all my dear readers! I hope you all enjoyed the holidays. We had a fairly quiet time, getting acquainted with #MuseumBaby No.2 and our new life as a family of four. I have a few new things planned here on the blog for 2015, however, I’ll be starting the year off slowly as #MuseumBaby is my priority at the moment. But some of my lovely blogger friends will be popping by with a few guest posts, so don’t worry, there will still be plenty to see and read.

But before I start looking forward, I want to take a few moments to look back and reflect on the most popular posts of 2014 here on Museum Diary.

1. Should children be banned from museums?

This post from February 24 – in response to an incident at the Tate Modern which caused a lot of discussion on the internet – was by far the most popular post of the year. ‘Kids in Museums’ a topic I am and remain very passionate about (in case you’re wondering, my stance is of course “no, they shouldn’t be banned!”). You can be sure of more ‘Kids in Museums’ posts in 2015!


2. Museum Craft Corner: Origami Sumo Wrestlers

The Museum Craft Corner posts are very popular in general, but your favourite one in the past year was this Origami Sumo Wrestlers Game from 2012. In fact, this is the second year in a row this post has clung on to second place in the most popular posts charts! A perfect handmade gift for any occasion, for museum lovers, kids and those young at heart.

3. Statens Museum for Kunst

We actually visited this museum in Copenhagen in December 2013, but I didn’t blog about it until later last year. It was and still is one of my best experiences anywhere visiting an art museum with a young child. It seems the blog post about it proved as popular with my readers as the museum did with us!


4. 11 Questions to a Museum Blogger on Museum Blog/gers Day

Last March, I hosted a ‘Museum Blog/gers Day’ on Twitter through Museum140, together with Jaime from Museum Minute. To coincide with this, I also took part in a so called ‘Blogstöckchen’, answering 11 questions all about being a museum blogger. It seems you really enjoyed reading my answers and finding out more about what makes me tick :)


5. Bread Museums

Weirdly, this post about bread museums from 2012 made it in to last year’s Top 5. It is also in the top 5 results on Google when you search for ‘bread museums’. It begs the question – who are all these people searching for bread museums? Definitely seems to be a gap in the market.
