The latest installment of the ‘Meet a Museum Family‘ series, in which I interview other museum loving families asking them to share their experiences and tips with my readers, comes with a couple of firsts: it’s our first Museum Family from Canada, and also the first time a Museum Dad has answered the interview questions. Please welcome Ryan and his family, from Toronto! 1. Why don’t you start by telling us a bit about yourself and your family? My name is Ryan Dodge and I am […]

We are all big bookworms at our house, even little #MuseumBaby loves to grab a book and flick through the pages. For a while now, we’ve been collecting children’s books set in museums. I already had a couple before the boys were born, but since they have come along the collection has grown – over 20 books and counting!

I am delighted to continue the ‘Meet a Museum Family’ series this year!

We thought it would be nice to have a little museum outing on Boxing Day, and decided to take a trip out to the Dahlem Museums to see the Christmas exhibits at the Museum of European Cultures. Their collection of nativity scenes from around the world, the mechanical Christmas Mountain (both referenced in a previous blog post), and […]

Apologies for the silence around the blog recently, November has caught me a little by surprise. But I really wanted to share some photos with you from an event that #MuseumBoy and I attended a couple of weekends ago. Berlin’s Märkisches Museum is one that we’ve had mixed experiences with in the past, but I wanted to give them another chance. What better opportunity, than their annual ‘Familientag’ (Family Day). This year’s theme was ‘Emil und die Detektive’ (Emil and the Detectives), after the name […]

This week, you can find me as a guest contributor over on ‘Mr Fox’, an online magazine  and weekly newsletter “for modern, discerning parents” which features “the best content across all aspects of modern family life”. The site first caught my attention due to its name – #MuseumBaby’s nickname is ‘Mr Fox’ – and I have been a regular reader pretty much from the start. I am therefore delighted to have been asked to share my tips and advice for enjoying family museum trips without meltdowns! You can […]
