I am an avid learner, and always looking for books, journals and films to consume that will help my museum practice. Here, I will build a bibliography of museology books and documentaries that I've read and reviewed on the main blog.

If there is no review linked, it's on my "to read" shelf and I hope to review it eventually. Do know of something you think I should review? Let me know.
