I’m a museum curator and mum of two with a third on the way. About to start my maternity leave, I’ve decided to  review what museums can offer families. I’ve set myself the challenge of 50 reviews in a year – be it of exhibitions, events, special activities, online offerings. I’m interested in the whole experience – from the travel to the toilets (please let there be nappy changing facilities!), whether I feel comfortable breastfeeding and if my kids enjoy it. I love museums – and I want my kids to, too. So they need to be fun, as well as enlightening.

Please get involved – if you’re a parent or museum buff, let me know what you want to know about a museum before you visit it, add your comments to my reviews, or suggest somewhere to go. And if you’re a museum or a cultural venue who would like me to review your family offer, please drop me a line. If you’re that way inclined, you can follow or message me on Twitter @vykisparkes

Please note all opinions expressed are my own. And I am very opinionated.

  2. Dear Museum Mum,
    I’m a Brazilian architect professor and I research about museums. Now I have a project about museums and babies and I’m researching accessibility and infrastructure for families with babies in museums. As the matter of fact, I have a similar blog about Belo Horizonte museums, my city in Brazil. I would like to find a good international example of great baby changing room and museum infrastructure for babies. Maybe you can help me… If it’s possible, please, write me an e-mail. Congratulations for you blog, I just love it!
    Best regards,
    Ana Cecília
