Museums in the Twittersphere!

On Wednesday 17 September 2014 721 museums in 43 countries took part in #AskACurator Day on Twitter – including the University of Cambridge Museums. The day saw galleries and museums from across the globe answer questions from members of the public and other organisations about favourite objects, qualifications required to work in a museum and behind the scenes secrets, all using the hashtag ‘AskACurator’.

Here’s just a little of what we got up to…
