2018 Museum Challenge – Where did I go?

2018 Museum Challenge – Where did I go?

Hello everyone, I hope you had a nice summer! I am currently in London and with that back-to-school feeling in the air, I thought it would be a good idea to look back at my travels of the last 6 months.

The blog Art Weekenders created the 2018 Museum Challenge (amazing idea). The concept is simple, you have to visit a new museum at least once a month! So I read about the challenge just a few months ago and I thought it would be a great opportunity in September to go through my trips and pictures.

Let’s look at how I did! Did I pass the museum challenge for the first half of 2018?

I don’t want to brag, but… pretty good no? I must say I am quite happy with the overall results. Only 2 months without visiting a new institution. Also, a lot of the new ones were on my art bucket list! You know my never-ending wish list of art destinations, check it out here.

Another good point for me personally is that in all the places I have been, some (a lot) were abroad but I also managed to see a few in my home country and region.

What about you…do you pass the Museum Challenge?
