Museum Week

Help us curate a virtual museum of science and technology by taking part in Twitter's first ever #MuseumWeek. 24-30 March 2014


For Museum Week, we are working with the following museums:

To create #MyMuseum, a virtual museum full of all your favourite science or technology objects.

We would love you to contribute too by tweeting with the #MyMuseum hashtag, sharing a photo and the reason why your object deserves a place in the virtual museum.

We will be sharing our favourite #MyMuseum tweets below (with prizes for the best suggestions during the week), along with the objects our curators couldn't live without.

Find out about all Museum Week activities and follow us on Twitter to see what we are sharing.
