Twitter’s #MuseumWeek (March 28–April 3) lands at the AGO

March 21st, 2016

7 days, 7 themes, 7 hashtags

From March 28–April 3, we’re inviting you to join us and more than 2,000 other cultural organizations on Twitter for #MuseumWeek, a global social media campaign that encourages discussion on why museums matter, how they inspire us and what we can all do to keep them vital.

Each day of #MuseumWeek 2016 focuses on a different theme: secrets, people, architecture, heritage, the future, zoom, and love. Using each day’s corresponding hashtag, museum staff members and visitors all from over the world will fill Twitter with their ideas, memories, photos and questions.

Follow us @agotoronto on  Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram to stay up-to-date with our #MuseumWeek trivia and in-gallery challenges.

PLUS: Each day, our Gallery Guides’ Highlights and On The Dot tours will feature special #MuseumWeek themes and destinations.

1-Hour Highlights Tours (every one is different!): 11am, 12pm, 1pm, 2pm, 3pm every day. Meet in Walker Court, Level 1 (If you need directions, head to the Info Kiosk at the entrance.)

On the Dot Tours: Quick, 10-minute art chats. Meet in front of the work On the Dot.
