Abstract: Amateur museums are museums that are run as leisure pursuits by their makers. These museums have generally been omitted from current museology research. However, because of their specificities, they give us the opportunity to question relevant issues about the museum as an institution, the aim of its practices, the way in which individuals can relate to museums and the role that they might have in our societies. I approach amateur museum practices through a qualitative methodology based on the grounded theory. Seven case studies from Catalonia and a contrast case from Medellin (Colombia) comprise the corpus of this research. All cases have been approached through participant observation, in-depth interviews and documental analysis.
