#MuseumWeek at the Horniman

Later this month the Horniman will join museums and galleries from across the UK and Europe for the first ever Twitter #MuseumWeek.

#MuseumWeek will take place from Monday 24 March to Sunday 30 March. Museums have been asked to sign up and tweet using the #MuseumWeek hashtag, giving the public unparalelled access to the people and important work going on behind the scenes.

The project will also see museums tweet using a different theme and hashtag for each day of the week.

On Monday 24, we'll be tweeting a #DayInTheLife of our staff, giving our followers a peek into all that hard work happening at the Horniman. For the #MuseumMastermind theme, we'll have a selection of quizzes and questions to pose to the keenest Horniman fans, while the last day of #MuseumWeek gives people the chance to #GetCreative on our Community Music Day.

The Horniman will join other major UK organisations already signed up, including @sciencemuseum, @NHM_London, @britishmuseum and @Tate.

A full list of participating UK organisations can be viewed here.

You can follow the Hornimans #MuseumWeek activity by signing up to Twitter and following us @HornimanMuseum.
