As part of the city’s Lange Nacht der Museen (museum night), Berlin’s hoped-for Buchstaben Museum (letter museum) invited visitors to view its collection in a converted space on the ground floor of a highrise apartment building in the Leipziger Straße.
Although the experience was cool, I have to admit that my visit was not as good as it could have been. Apart from the size of the collection, which was small, none of the volunteers present asked me, for instance:
- if I wanted to sign up for their email list (I already had on their website)
- or if I would like a tour (I would have)
- or if I would like to make a donation to their cause (which I wouldn’t have had, but it is always nice to be asked).
I would have paid admission to enter, but there wasn’t a fee. I did buy two cute little buttons! If you missed this open house, I’m sure that there will be another opportunity; this is already the second opportunity inside three months.
