Hands-on Science at Gothenburg’s Universeum

Happy Museum Monday everyone! Today I wanted to share another museum visit from our trip to Gothenburg a couple of years ago, which to date ranks among my top family holiday of all time. Technically, the Universeum is actually a science centre, rather than a museum, but let’s not be too picky about definitions. In fact, […] Read more…

Dunfermline Carnegie Library & Galleries

Happy Museum Monday! A couple of weeks ago I shared our visit to the fantastic Andrew Carnegie Birthplace Museum in Dunfermline, here in Scotland. Well, it’s not the only museum Dunfermline has to offer, as we also popped in to the Dunfermline Carnegie Library & Galleries which houses a museum about Dunfermline’s rich history. Our […] Read more…

Learning About Nature at Berlin’s Forest Museum

Happy Museum Monday everyone! I’ve got another great little hidden gem from Berlin for you today. It’s been a couple of years since we visited this museum, but I am reassured it’s still there and even if some little details may have changed the essence of it is still the same. Tucked away in Berlin’s […] Read more…

Medieval Fun at Craigmillar Castle

Edinburgh Castle is undoubtedly one of the most famous and recognisable visitor attractions on the city’s skyline, but did you know Edinburgh actually has more than one castle? A couple of weekends ago, we took a trip to visit Craigmillar Castle, a medieval ruin located around three miles south-east of the city centre. I had […] Read more…

The Andrew Carnegie Birthplace Museum

This past weekend we took a day trip to Dunfermline, across the water from Edinburgh in Fife. The Andrew Carnegie Birthplace Museum in Dunfermline has been nominated for this year’s Family Friendly Museum Award, so we thought we’d check it out. I last visited there with kids when my eldest was just 9 months old, […] Read more…

Happy Museum Monday! We have another fabulous museum from Copenhagen to share with you this week: The Statens Museum for Kunst, or the National Gallery of Denmark. I think it’s also the first art gallery we’ve reviewed in our Monday series so far. It’s been a couple of years since we visited, but I’ve checked […] Read more…

A Worker’s Life at the Arbejdermuseet

Happy Museum Monday! Today’s museum recommendation comes from one of my favourite cities – Copenhagen. It has some fantastically family-friendly museums, one of which is the Arbejdermuseet. It’s been a while since we visited, but from what I gather it’s not changed much. The Arbejdermuseet – or in English ‘Worker’s Museum’ – was opened in the early 1980s by […] Read more…
