About us

 

Experience the world of museum lifestyle

This blog is about the art scene. We started in 2015 after a weekend in Basel (CH) where we decided a lifestyle and fashion blog can be more than just fast fashion clothes. Sitting at the most awesome restaurant boat we decided to create a new kind of blog – about more than the fashion industry, for women like us who like to dress awesome, love art and design, read great books and want more from a blog than just styling tips. We write about our passion – art, fashion and museums – and a lot more. You can follow us to great events and hotels all around the world.

2016 brought some changes already. We welcomed our first contributing writer, Ann-Katrin, who will tell you everything about her life in London and the art scene there. Furthermore we won the “Golden Blogger 2015” for the best fashion and lifestyle blog. This is a big motivation for us to get even better and make 2016 our year. We’re happy and thankful if you like the idea of MuseumLifestyle, please don’t hesitate to give us feedback!

We post in English most of the time.
