One of the best things about social media is that it can — and does — happen everywhere: at home, at work and school, on the street and inside the walls of galleries and museums. We love sharing our collection, exhibitions and events with you on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and here on the blog, but what we like even more is seeing your posts about what you saw and did at the AGO.
From March 23-29, we’re inviting you to join us and more than 1,400 other cultural organizations on Twitter for #MuseumWeek. Each day will focus on a different theme: secrets, souvenirs, architecture, inspiration, family, favourites and — perhaps inevitably — selfies. Using each day’s corresponding hashtag, museum staff and visitors all over the world will fill Twitter with their ideas, memories, suggestions and questions. Join the conversation and tell your followers why museums matter, how they inspire you and what we can all do to keep them vital. Mention us @agotoronto so we can see your posts and share them with our followers too.
Have a look at the tweets below and see what museums and their visitors around the world are posting about #MuseumWeek.
