The Museum Makers

£9.99

Museum expert Rachel Morris had been ignoring the three boxes of family belongings beneath her bed for decades. When she opened them she began a journey into her family’s dramatic story through the literary and bohemian circles of the 19th and 20th century. It was a revelatory experience – one that was to take her back to her isolated upbringing, searching for her father in archives of the Tate, back to the museums that had once enriched her lonely childhood, teasing out a story that digs deep into the human instinct for collection and curation.
