Micromuseology: slow roads to small museums

Friday 13th October 2017

3.15-4.15pm

Northwood House, Cowes 

Lecture as part of the Red Funnel Isle of Wight Literary Festival.

There were times when Professor Fiona Candlin wondered why she had decided to write an academic book about small, quirky museums. She will be talking about the highs and lows of driving a campervan around the UK to visit the Bakelite Museum, the Museum of Witchcraft, the Vintage Wireless Museum and dozens of other idiosyncratic exhibitions.
