Museums in Strange Places

By Hannah Hethmon

Museums in Strange Places is a podcast for people who love museums, stories, culture, and exploring the world. This year, I'm living in Iceland, so in each episode, I visit a different Icelandic museum to discover what stories they hold and how they reflect and shape Iceland's unique cultural identity, all from the perspective of a museum professional. Next year...I'll be somewhere else in Europe! Subscribe to Museums in Strange Places and you can expect fascinating conversations with Icelandic museum professionals, world class exhibitions, private museums in gas stations, an introduction to Icelanders and their knack for storytelling, and a unique window into the inner workings of museums on this strange but wonderful little island.
