This blog is all about making the most of our family time – from days out to family travel. We are rarely far from a museum or cultural destination, but like most families we find fun in lots of different places. I love to share our experiences, and want all families to feel at home in museums. And my kids are more likely than most to run off, have a meltdown, get bored or just generally be, well, child-like. So if it works for my family, I’m sure it will for yours too!
A bit about me:
I’m a museum curator, a job I love and gave up a (much better paid) career in marketing to move into. I’ve been fortunate to have worked at a number of museums – from the big nationals (TATE, Science Museum, Natural History Museum) to independents (The Postal Museum) and now find myself in my dream job at the Museum of London.
I became a mum in the first year of my second attempt at a degree, so have been juggling life, work, studying and motherhood with varying degrees of success for over 15 years. I now have three children – referred to here as only Museum Teen (15), Museum Boy (5) and Museum Girl (3).
As well as blog reviews, I have conducted numerous mystery shopper visits to visitor attractions, been a guest speaker and provided training in family friendly welcomes for museums.
I love to hear about your museum visits, days out and travels and am happy to discuss collaborative opportunities. Please do comment, subscribe, follow me on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook or contact me directly!
