  • A Happy New Year to all our friends, fans and followers! We’re starting the new year with over 120 fans on Facebook and just short of 1,100 followers on Twitter – considering we only started Museum140 last March, we think that is pretty fantastic.

    Time to answer another ‘Ask Us Anything’ question. Quite often we get asked where we get the ideas for our projects from.

    Last week, on 17th May, Museum Memories Day  returned to Twitter by popular request, two years after it was first initiated! The idea was as simple as before: everyone was invited to tweet about their most memorable museum moments using the hashtag #MusMem. All those tweets were then collected in our Memory Bank, and we [...]
