Happy Christmas Eve, everyone! Here in Germany, we start our festive celebrations today, and I will be signing off for the next week to spend some quality time with my family. But before I go, I have a little Christmas present for you, to thank you all for reading and supporting my blog this year. You may remember earlier this year, I reviewed and recommended a children’s book called ‘Mi & Museum City’, written and illustrated by the extremely talented Linda Sarah. It’s been one […]

Kids in Museums Book Club: No Balloons at the MET!

October 17, 2016

1 Comment

After a bit of a summer of a summer hiatus, the Kids in Museums Book Club is back. And since we are heading to New York for the Autumn school holidays, the book club is heading there too. This is the first time I’ve chosen a book with no words in it at all, but both my 2 year old and my 6 year old love ‘You Can’t Take a Balloon Into The Metropolitan Museum’, by Jacqueline Preiss Weitzman and Robin Preiss Glasser. We make […]

I have a bit of a soft spot for Maritime Museums, so when I found myself with some extra time in Amsterdam, either side of a conference I attended last week, Het Scheepvartmuseum – which I had never been to before – was top of my list! It’s pretty stunning when you walk in to the glass covered courtyard! From there, three different wings lead off to the exhibitions: the North, East and West wings. I decided to start with the East Wing. On the […]

{Germany} Plattenbau Living at the DDR Museum

Last week, I was invited to visit the DDR Museum to view the new extension to their permanent exhibition which recently opened. I’ve written about the DDR Museum before. It’s one of the most popular museums in Berlin, and although it gets a little crowded at weekends, it’s a great museum to visit with kids. Even more so, after the recent changes. Previously, the museum was divided in to two key areas: the everyday side of life in the DDR, and the political side. So what’s […]

{Germany} Potato Festival at Domäne Dahlem

I’ve mentioned the Domäne Dahlem – an agricultural museum and working form in the South of Berlin – before. Since our move, it’s just an easy door-to-door subway ride away, so we have become more frequent guests over the past year. The highlights are definitely their special seasonal fairs, which take place throughout the year. Just a couple of weeks ago we visited their Medieval Knight Festival, and today we went to see the Potato Festival. Ever since hearing about it, #MuseumBoy has wanted to go […]

{Germany} The Golem is coming!

September 23, 2016

  Today, a new temporary exhibition opens at the Jewish Museum Berlin: Golem. I was privileged enough to be invited to a special preview for social media influencers two nights before, and was thoroughly impressed. A golem is a mythological creature from Jewish folklore, usually made from mud or clay, that is brought to life by humans in many stories e.g. through ritual incantations, or specific Hebrew letter combinations. While the intentions are more often than not good, with the Golem intended as companion or […]
