Museums in Strange Places

By Hannah Hethmon

Welcome to Museums in Strange Places, a podcast for people who love museums, stories, culture, and exploring the world. In Season 1, the podcast focuses on museums in Iceland. Season 2 explores the museums of Maryland. I’m your host, Hannah Hethmon, and in each episode I visit a different museum to discover its stories, discuss challenges and triumphs with fascinating museum professionals (and volunteers), and get to know each season’s country, state, or region through it museums. I believe that museums are one of the best ways to discover a place, whether it’s your first time visiting or you’ve lived there your whole life. Join me on this adventure as I get to know the world….one museum as a time. Get bonus material from each episode (photos, further reading, links) by visiting individual episode pages at hhethmon.com. Use the hashtag #MuseumsinStrangePlaces on social media. Interested in starting a podcast at your organization?
