Good evening, my deer… uhm, sorry, dear Readers! Our one-week project called a tiny museum savoir-vivre is just about to end! Today we’re going to discover the last tip. However, if you feel that there is something important that we didn’t include in our set of suggestions & tips for a thoughtful museum going, let me know! Just leave a comment below, or get in touch with me via Facebook or Twitter!
It’s been a great pleasure to work on the tiny museum savoir-vivre. I hope that you will find it both entertaining and useful! Remember that the most important thing is that you feel comfortable when visiting a museum. Also, try to engage as much as possible during a visit. Check out the interactive elements of an exhibition, take some notes or doodles of anything that attracts your attention, and if you don’t understand something — don’t be afraid to ask questions! This is your time, and your possibility to discover some truly fascinating stories. Enjoy!
And now… for the last tip! Thank you so much, guys, hope to see you around soon!

Hey, everyone! We’re almost at the end of our one-week project called a tiny museum savoir-vivre! I feel like we’ve learned a lot together. We already know how important it is to not interrupt other visitors, we know that we shouldn’t eat inside the exhibition room (even if we are really, really hungry), neither should we answer phone calls there. If we want to take a photo we have to make sure that the flash is switched off, and if we need to step back a little in order to see a huge object properly, we should be careful not to bump into somebody / something that may be located behind us. To some of you today’s tip may seem a bit funny, but I must tell you that sometimes I really have to repeat it in my mind…

My beloved Readers! When you’ll see the next tip from our tiny museum savoir-vivre, I guess that many of you may think: “Nah! Tale as old as time, everybody knows that!”. Good for you, guys! But believe me: every time I visit a museum, I can see that it still is a huge problem. I’m talking about taking photos with flash.

Hi there, welcome to the Little Mooseum on this beautiful Sunday afternoon! What have you been up to today? Did you go for a bike ride out of town? Did you watch a movie? Or maybe… you decided to visit a museum? I must confess that my Sunday has been pretty tranquil and easy so far. I went to a flea market to check out some second-hand books and CDs, then I had a quick lunch followed by a large piece of sponge cake with raspberries and ice cream. Finally, after a short nap, I decided that it’s probably a good moment to show you the next part of our tiny museum savoir-vivre, which we have been working on together for four days already! We’re doing great, don’t you think? Here you can take a look at the previous tips: the first, the second, and the third one. Enjoy! And have an amoosing…erm… amusing Sunday evening!

Hello, everyone! How are you? Are you enjoying your summer vacation already? I bet you are! If you were following this blog (or our Facebook page), you probably noticed that since our visit to the exhibition of Toy Boats I have been working on something special. It’s high time I told you what it is! You know, I think it’s really important that one feels comfortable in a museum. I believe that it’s good to have a couple of things in mind while visiting museums, especially during the holiday season, when most of them are incredibly crowded. Therefore, I decided to make a special series of tips for those who are planning a visit to a museum. For a week (starting today), I will be posting one tip per day, and hopefully by next Thursday we will already have something we may call our tiny museum savoir-vivre, okay? Let’s start right away!

Hello, everyone! I’m Toby the Moose, and I really like visiting moose… ehm, museums! I travel a lot, usually choosing plane, but I also enjoy travelling by sea (just in case you didn’t know: moose feel particularly well in the aquatic environment, which means that they enjoy splishing and splashing in rivers and lakes). I love boats, ships, transatlantic liners, kayaks, even ferries! Although you could get from one place to another much faster if you travelled by plane, a sea journey is always a great adventure! You can count seagulls, observe chubby seals sunbathing on rocky shores, and inhale the wonderful smell of salty water, fish and algae! Sounds great, doesn’t it? Now that you know about my soft spot for boats, ships and sea, I’d like to show you something special. Ready? Come on, it will be fun, I promise! We’re heading for… Barcelona!
