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.
