The Attic (a name which commemorates our first physical location) is, first and foremost, a site for the research students of the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester: a virtual community which aims to include all students, be they campus-based and full-time, or distance-learning and overseas. But we welcome contributions from students of museum studies - and allied subject areas - from outside the School and from around the world. Here you will find a lot of serious stuff, like exhibition and research seminar reviews, conference alerts and calls for papers, but there's also some 'fluff'; the things that inspire, distract and keep us going. After all, while we may be dead serious academic types, we're human too.

Escape the Museum

I am, I have to confess, a huge devotee of casual games, to the detriment of my PhD I'm sure. But look what I found this evening: Escape the Museum!

At long last I can combine research with my gaming. ;)

You might enjoy this student project, which is a "tower defense" type game.

The premise of the game is to destroy "modern art" that is trying to invade your masters gallery.
