This Belongs in a Museum

Once called the "Stephen Fry of Museum Blogging," this tumblog, written by a frustrated museologist, is dedicated to the small, random museums and weird attractions of the world. Always informative, usually funny, sometimes offensive.

Bringing you museum-approved grammatical errors and typos since 2010.

Steven Wright might be the name of a deadpan comedian, but please don’t confuse him with folk artist Stephen Wright (or English footballer Stephen Wright). Back in 1999, Stephen the artist was a stationary and textile designer. But one day after seeing Jarvis Cocker’s Journeys into the Outside, he decided to transform his house, located in the London suburb of East Dulwich, into a museum, called the House of Dreams. Inspired by the work of French art environment builders Raymond Isidore (Picassiette) and Bodan Litnianski, his house has become an an all-consuming art project decorated with large-scale colourful mosaics, papier maché and cement constructions, and discarded objects like bottle tops, broken dolls, false teeth and crockery. In his words, “he has created his own Mexico in a quiet grey street…” Right now it is open to the public on a limited basis, but there are plans in place to bequeath the museum to the National Trust, so the dream will never ever end. If you want to see this place in person, remember to bring 10 pounds and go on the following dates: 8th June, 6th July, 3rd August, 7th September.
