About me

Location London, United Kingdom
Introduction I have written this blog in order to share my experiences of visiting museums, galleries and heritage sites with my family & friends. After going to museums and galleries, I often come home wanting to tell the stories about what I have seen to family and friends to encourage them to visit too. This blog allows me to do that. I thought that perhaps there are others who might be interested and be inspired to visit too. My approach is to talk about the objects, the art-e-facts, rather than the museums and galleries in general. Stories about, and visitor responses to objects fascinate me. These stories may be told by the museums themselves, the people I visit with or, on some occasions, other visitors. I am at IOE doing a PhD researching family/intergenerational learning in museums and galleries. This blog will generally be London-centric as I live and study here, but I try to visit other places when I’m visiting family & friends around the country. If you can recommend museums, galleries or heritage sites, please get in touch. kalston18@gmail.com.
