Projects, events and news from the University of Cambridge Museums
University of Cambridge Museums are joining forces with over 1400 other participants across the world to be a part of Museum Week 2015. With seven great themes to be inspired by and kick starting on Monday 23 March, next week is shaping up to be a lot of fun.
What is Museum Week?
It’s a week-long Twitter event – 7-days for museum-lovers to get tweeting and celebrate culture together. #MuseumWeek
In addition to #MuseumWeek, there’s a different hashtag theme every day so museums and culture-vultures across the globe will be tweeting like mad to share stories, photos, facts and more.
Alongside participants from 50 countries, look out for tweets from across the University of Cambridge Museums
