This is the blog of Dr. Kirsty Robertson, a professor of Museum Studies and Contemporary Art at the University of Western Ontario.

“Micro-museum are typically museums that are small, open to the public, and reflect the passionate collecting of a single person or group of people. They typically do not follow traditional museum formats, but have enough overlap so as to be recognizable as museums. Micro-museums are found across the globe, in urban and rural locations.”

Curiouser and Curiouser is a travelogue and compendium of micro-museums. You can read more about Kirsty’s research on micro-museums here. The first part of the blog documents Robertson’s sabbatical: a year-long road trip taken around North America with her partner (Tim Pearson) and dog (Lucy) to search out as many micro-museums as possible. The second part of the blog (from September, 2014) documents continued visits to small museums, and the growing research project that came from the sabbatical trip.
