Part memoir, part detective story, part untold history of museums, The Museum Makers is a fascinating and moving family story told through museum expert Rachel Morris' experiences of opening the long-ignored boxes under her bed. She discovered an entire bohemian family history in a revelatory experience: searching for her absent father through the Tate archives and understanding the grandmother who raised her. Her search transported her back to the museums that had enriched her lonely childhood.
By teasing out the stories of those early museum makers, and the unsung daughters and wives behind them, and seeing the same passions and mistakes reflected in her own family, Morris digs deep into the human instinct for collection and curation.
