Advent Calendar 2011

As you will have noticed, we have just featured our 22nd on this blog – a big thank you to everyone who has adopted a museum so far! We’ve decided to take a wee break during December as it’s a really busy time for everyone with lots of people going on holiday too, and we don’t want any of the featured museums to get less attention than the others because they’re overshadowed by Christmas. But instead we’ve created an Adopt-a-Museum spin off Advent Calendar for you! Each day from 1 to 24 December you can discover a new museum, recommended either by the team at Museum140 or by one of our previous adopters who were so keen they wanted to recommend another museum! We’re still focusing mostly on smaller, lesser known museums, though we’ve relaxed the rules a bit, especially for some of the more unusual museums that often feature e.g. on “world’s wackiest museums” lists, as we wanted the calendar to be fun.

We hope you enjoy the daily photographs and recommendations, and we’ll be back with our full length features in January. Don’t forget, we’re always on the look out for new adopters, so if you know a great museum you want to put in the spotlight, please get in touch and we’ll send you the Adopt-a-Museum questionnaire. In return, you’ll get one of our fabulously stylish stickers, and a warm glowing feeling from having promoted one of your favourite museums.

Wishing you all a great Advent!

The team from Museum140
