7 days, 7 themes, 7 hashtags – Museum Week 2015

GroupUniversity 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.
