Get ready for #MuseumWeek

Wednesday 19 March 2014

Museum Week is coming!

A whole week dedicated to museums and galleries will see Twitter buzzing with cultural tweets, starting on Monday 24 March. To celebrate museum week, we'll be whizzing around London on Friday 28, trying to see as many of the city's free museums and galleries as possible, and giving you a taste of the culture on offer in the capital. We'll be making Vines, taking photos, and showing you our favourite exhibits.

Here's where you come in

We'd like you to tweet us photos of your favourite free museums in the UK, whether they're from your last trip to Britain, or taken in real-time next week. They don't have to be in London! Hashtag them with #MuseumWeek and be sure to @VisitBritain, and we'll retweet them for the world to see. Good luck, and have fun!
