#MuseumWeek on Twitter
Helping people connect with the Museum on social media is an exciting part of my job as Digital Content Specialist. That’s why I’m really looking forward to participating for the first time in #MuseumWeek from March 23 to 29.
For a full week, more than 1,400 museums around the world, including 92 in Canada, will come together to celebrate access to culture on Twitter. We’re all encouraging our visitors to share their experiences and their thoughts with others.
What is #MuseumWeek?
It’s a special event that happens on Twitter. Each day has a theme and a hashtag. We will provide glimpses from behind the scenes, talk about some of our favourite parts of the Museum, and share a few anecdotes. But it’s not about us. #MuseumWeek is all about YOU. Since a museum means nothing without its visitors. We invite you to participate in this international movement by sharing your museum experience, what inspires you, what moves you, or what you have learned.
Here are the themes for each day of the week, from March 23 to 29.
- Monday – #SecretsMW
- Tuesday – #SouvenirsMW
- Wednesday – #ArchitectureMW
- Thursday – #InspirationMW
- Friday – #FamilyMW
- Saturday – #FavMW
- Sunday – #PoseMW
Ever wanted to know what happens in a museum when you aren’t there? This day is for you! We will share our some behind-the-scenes “secrets” using hashtag #SecretMW.
It’s your turn!
What are your best memories from your visit? It might be something that moved you, inspired you, a special photo, or a gift from our Boutique.
The Museum’s architecture is highly symbolic. Next Wednesday, we’lll share some of its secrets. You can also use #ArchitectureMW to share your own favourite aspects of our architecture.
Share what inspired you during your visit with #InspirationMW. Architecture? An artifact? A quote? A personal story? A gallery? Tell everyone and see what inspires others!
Looking for way to get children involved in human rights? Follow us on Friday! We’ll share information on our content for kids, families and teachers. Why not share your own thoughts about your Museum experience as a family or school group?
This is a day for our guides and interpreters to share their anecdotes. What about you? Share your favourites with #FavMW.
Strike a pose for human rights! From the Garden of Contemplation to the Israel Asper Tower of Hope, there are lots of amazing locations for a selfie or group shot.
