‘Die Mauer’ – The Berlin Wall Panorama

This past weekend, Saturday 9th November, marked the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. I don’t think it’s an historical event that needs much introduction. It’s one of those ‘where were you?’ moments. On 9th November 1989, I was 11 years old, we were living in Scotland, and I remember it being on […] Read more…

Hands-on Science at Gothenburg’s Universeum

Göteborgs Stadsmuseum with Kids

Happy Museum Monday! We’re heading back to Sweden with this week’s recommendation. Our trip to Gothenburg (or Göteborg, as it’s known in Sweden) a couple years ago is one of my favourite family holidays to date, and the host of family friendly museums in Gothenburg were a big part of that. I’ve previously shared our […] Read more…

On track at the U-Bahn Museum Berlin

Exploring Japan’s History at Edo-Tokyo Museum

Happy Museum Monday! I’m back this week with yet another museum recommendation from Japan. If you are visiting Tokyo, then you are spoiled for choice with the many excellent museums on offer, but one museum I would say is a ‘must see’, is the Edo-Tokyo Museum. It showcases Tokyo’s history, life and culture from around […] Read more…

Though the museum explicitly states that it is not just intended for the benefit of people who are already fans of Studio Ghibli. […] Read more…
