Cast your mind back a year, when we took part in the first ever Twitter #MuseumWeek. We shared pictures, interesting parts of our collection and some scary selfies to celebrate an entire week on Twitter devoted to engaging with our wonderful followers and the other museums taking part.

Well this year #MuseumWeek is back, with 7 days of content for you to take part in from Monday 23rd March till Sunday 29th March. We’ll be tweeting content out everyday for you to enjoy, but we’d love it if you could get involved on any of the days themes.


Museums and cultural establishments from all over the globe welcome you to their everyday world and introduce you to work behind the scenes… and perhaps a few well-kept secrets!


Share your souvenirs and memories of visits: photos, mugs, books, postcards, encounters and special moments!


Explore the history, architectural heritage, gardens and surroundings of museums.


Now it’s your turn to create and share for posterity! Art, science, history and ethnography are all around us. To your smartphones!


With the weekend almost here, prepare family visits or upcoming school trips with advice and tips from the museums themselves.


Now the weekend has begun, share your special favourites (works, conferences, locations, etc.) in 140-character messages, videos, photos or Vines.


This last day of #MuseumWeek 2015 is all about creativity! Poses, memes or selfies… it’s up to you!


Send us your questions, pictures (let’s see those Museum poses!), and join in the conversation on Twitter all next week. Make sure you tag us in anything you want us to see and we’ll make sure to hit that retweet button on all our favourite posts!
